Sapphire’s energy sings for those who love truth and wisdom
Sapphires come in every shade of the rainbow except for bright red. That’s because a Red Sapphire is always called a Ruby. Scientifically, Sapphire and Ruby are color varieties of the mineral corundum. At Moonrise Crystals, all of our Sapphires come from southern Sri Lanka. In recent years, there have been troubling reports of human rights violations against journalists, lawyers, and activists who criticize the Sri Lankan government. The miners, however, are the rural poor who depend on the gems for their daily living. The Sapphire are panned in the gravel of the Kalu River or manually dug out with shovels and pick-axes in the paddy fields.
