Sapphire is the September birthstone and comes in many colors, some
having a color change in different lighting. Ruby, red sapphire, is the
July birthstone. Because sapphire, or corundum, is the second hardest
natural gemstone, it is very durable and also is hightly refractive,
exhibiting beautiful play of colors if cut and polished properly.
