|Comments||The color blue has had special significance across cultures. It is the color that signifies the heavens. However the symbolism of blue extends much beyond and there are varied interpretations.
Featured today is an exceptional gem – a fully natural unheated and treatment free Ceylon Blue sapphire of 3.37 carats set in sterling silver as a Saturn Talisman ring. The Premium rectangular cushion cut Blue sapphire from Sri Lanka, has a gorgeous Sky blue color with violet overtones. It is a gem with superb clarity and has a mesmerizing, electric lustre.
A jyotish gemstone par class, the blue sapphire is flawless and has the powerful energies. According to Vedic Astrology or the ancient science of jyotish, the gemstone Blue sapphire also known as the Neelam stone, is dear to Lord Saturn / Shani Mahatma and is a repository of his divine saatvik energies. A duly energized and consecrated talisman made with a blue sapphire can beget an individual the benefits and blessings from Lord Saturn.
Natural Blue Sapphires from Ceylon are regarded as the best for jyotish purposes. And not just that, the blue sapphire from Sri Lanka is valued more than blue sapphires from other origins like Australia or Montana in the US.
The gems from the latter origins generally lack the clarity as well as lustre, which is very characteristic of the Ceylon Sapphire. It is for this very reason, that these latter sapphires are invariably treated gems (redundant for planetary gem therapy) – subjected to different treatments to enhance the appearance and fetch better value!
