SAPPHIRE

Sapphire is said to be the gemstone of harmony, friendship and loyalty.  Part of the corundum family, which also includes ruby, sapphire comes from the Persian "Saffir", or the Greek "Sapphiros". Blue is the best-known colour but it can be found in all colours of the spectrum. After diamond it is the hardest gemstone.
