September has historically been considered a harvest month, marking the transition from the Summer months into Autumn. With it comes changing weather, the beginning of school, and the sowing of new seeds. While one gem has been marked as the primary birthstone for September, this month has seen several crystals as its representative throughout history. Here are the birthstones for September:

Sapphire 

A stone of wisdom and royalty, blue sapphire has divine connections capable of unlocking prophecies. This is a sacred gem that has been featured in the historical folklore of nearly every world religion. Sapphire’s ability to clear the mind and promote truth comes from stimulating the throat chakra and the third eye, allowing you to see more deeply into the physical and spiritual worlds.

Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli 

Lapis Lazuli is considered an alternative birthstone for September and was once a treasure of ancient royalty. It decorated the sarcophagus of King Tut and the walls, fireplace, and doors of Catherine the Great’s Russian palace. This deep blue gem promotes mental clarity, serenity, and self-mastery. It is thought to be connected to the stars and heavens.

Peridot 

Peridot is listed on the ancient Russian, Hebrew, Italian, and Arabic calendars as the birthstone of September; today, it is considered the birthstone for August. It is a stone of positive energy that opens the heart chakra to remove blockages in your life. Folklore states that this crystal can also help find missing items.

Sardonyx

In Rome and Italy, sardonyx was once a birthstone for September. It is a strong protective stone that raises optimism and confidence by radiating positive energy in your aura. This stone is also great for students, as it can help with retaining lessons learned.

Agate

Agates were considered birthstones for September in ancient Tibet. These stabilizing gems are found in many varieties around the world. They are a type of chalcedony that provide an array of benefits based on their type.

Zircon

The ancient Hindu calendar lists blue zircon as September’s birthstone. Early Hindu and Vedic writings describe this stone as a leaf from a wish-fulfilling tree. The blue variety of this crystal has a quiet vibration that promotes peace by raising one’s inner joy.
