Black gemstones never go out of fashion and one of the most popular black gem types is sapphire. Black sapphire may be faceted or black star sapphire cabochons. Sapphire has a hardness level of 9 on the Mohs scale, which makes it one of the most durable gems of all time. Sapphire is a form of corundum that occurs in almost every color. Red corundum is known as ruby. The name corundum comes from the ancient Sanskrit "kuruvindam", while the name "sapphire" comes from the Persian word "safir". Sapphire is seen as the guardians of love. When given as a gift it enhances love and tunes your psyches to one another. Also, it has been used to banish envy and jealousy as well as promote fidelity in marriage. Shop for natural black sapphire gemstones from a range of sizes, shapes and cutting styles.
