September is the month of the sapphire gemstone. It is estimated that the largest sapphire in the world is worth around 300 million dollars and was mined in Sri Lanka. All around the world, gemstones are mined, cut and polished to make some of the most exquisite pieces of jewelry known to mankind. A list of birthstones was published by the Jewelers of America organization back in 1912. While modifications to a couple of months have been made since then, the list as a whole has basically stayed the same.
Today the list goes as follows:
- January – Garnet
- February – Amethyst
- March – Aquamarine, Blood Stone
- April – Diamond, Rock Crystal
- May – Emerald, Chrysoprase
- June – Pearl, Moonstone
- July – Ruby, Carnelian
- August – Peridot, Sardonyx
- September – Sapphire, Lapis Lazuli
- October – Opal
- November – Topaz, Citrine
- December – Tanzanite, Turquoise
