Protection. Intellect. Power

Star sapphire is a rare kind of sapphire that displays asterism under lighting. The asterism is the phenomenon of gemstones exhibiting a star-like concentration of reflected or refracted light when shaped and polished rather than faceted. A six-rayed star will seem to coast over the outside of this Sapphire and hence the name "Star Sapphire".

Star Sapphire helps to bring clarity and understanding to the intentions of others. It can also bring happiness to any mood or situation. This gemstone brings peace, tranquillity and spiritual healing whilst sustaining the life force and attracting joy and peace.

Ancient spiritual leaders regarded star sapphires as powerful talismans for protecting travellers and seekers. These gemstones were considered to be so powerful that they would continue to protect the wearer even after being passed on to another person.

Abbes Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) chronicled the healing powers of gemstones in her book "Physica". According to her view, gemstones are formed through the powerful combination of water and fire; therefore they hold powers corresponding to these phenomena. She also believed that each stone had a certain, divine blessing from God. What she said about sapphire is: "Who is dull and would like to be clever, should, in a sober state, frequently lick with the tongue on a sapphire, because the gemstone's warmth and power, combined with the saliva's moisture, will expel the harmful juices that affect the intellect. Thus, the man will attain a good intellect."
