The name sapphire comes from the Latin word for "blue".  Sapphire actually comes in a variety of colors, but blue is considered its "true" color.  The celestial hues of sapphire have long been associated with the heavens.  According to Hebrew lore the ten commandments given to Moses were written on tablets of sapphire.

Sapphire is known as the stone of wisdom.  It is said to bring order to the mind and give the ability to see beneath the surface to find underlying truth.  Sapphire is considered a symbol of integrity and has traditionally been worn during the signing of contracts and treaties.  It is a good gift choice for a businessperson or entrepreneur who wants to achieve success without compromising integrity.
