Meaning of green sapphires
Green sapphires are aligned with the heart chakra – they help us build love, compassion, and meaningful connections with ourself and others. A soothing color, green sapphires symbolize calm and ease – helping us slow our thoughts and soothe our emotions.
Green sapphire vs emerald
While green sapphire and emerald are both stunning green precious gemstones, that’s where the similarities end. Green sapphires are a member of the corundum family, whereas emeralds are made of the mineral beryl.
Green sapphires are much more durable than emerald, ranking a 9 on the Mohs hardness scale, whereas emeralds only score a 7.5-8. For an engagement ring, a green sapphire is a much more durable, and damage-resistant green gemstone option.
Emeralds are also much more difficult to find than green sapphires and have more natural inclusions.
In terms of price, green sapphires are usually more expensive than emeralds though it all depends on quality. If you’re looking for the shiniest, most lustrous stone, a green sapphire may be your match. If you love a softer, more velvety vibe, you’ll love an emerald.
