In addition to being surrounded by many myths and legends, Sapphire also enjoys one of the richest histories. In the Middle Ages, it was thought to be an antidote against poisons and to possess a magical power to influence the spirits. It is also mentioned numerous times in the Bible. This gem is the birthstone of September and is associated with the Zodiac sign of Taurus. It is also the gift for the 5th, 45th and 70th anniversaries. Its hard crystal structure measures 9 on the Mohs scale, making it incredibly durable.
The youngest Diamonds are believed to have been formed over 100 million years ago! For the necessary conditions to occur naturally, it is believed that Diamonds were created some 90 to 120 miles beneath the Earth’s crust. The only other valuable gem on the planet to crystallise under these hostile conditions is Peridot. Although Africa is still a major supplier of Diamonds, today it holds less than 50% of the market share, and it cannot control the market as much as it once did.
