The Star Sapphire is a Sapphire that exhibits a unique star-like pattern within the crystal, which is also known as an "asterism". The cause of this fascinating visual effect is tiny, needle like inclusions which intersect forming a six-rayed star shaped pattern. The intersection is formed most often from the mineral Rutile, which is composed primarily of Titanium Dioxide. This amazing pattern is most breathtaking when viewing under a single light source.
Star Sapphire can also be purple or blue, with the pink or red colored variety known as Star Ruby as Ruby can also exhibit asterism.
The Star Sapphire connects with the Angels of Faith, Hope, and Destiny. It draws you into its depths, deepening meditation and centering your thoughts. Star Sapphire increases clairvoyance, clairaudience, and prophecy, connecting the user to the Angelic Realms and other Light Beings. Star Sapphire can be used to connect to/contact beings from the stars. It helps to bring clarity and understanding into the intentions of others. Star Sapphire can also bring a cheery disposition to any situation.
In general, Sapphire is a stone of peace, tranquility, spiritual healing and spiritual truth. Sapphire is useful when channeling healing energies from the Angelic Realm or a higher source. This makes Sapphire an especially good stone for practitioners of Reiki and similar modalities. Sapphire helps the user stay on the Spiritual Path, boosting psychic and spiritual powers, and is a great stone for Earth and Chakra healing.
Believed by the Ancients to have been blessed by the Gods as a powerful protective stone, Sapphire has been used and treasured throughout history. There are many Biblical references to Sapphire, including that a Sapphire was one of the original stones in the breast plate of the High Priests. Sapphire is a form of Corundum, one of the hardest minerals on Earth. Sapphires form in many colors, depending upon the trace metals they contain. Red Corundum is referred to as Ruby.
