On the Mohs scale of hardness, Ceylon sapphires come in at 9, which is very close to diamonds, which rank at 10. This makes sapphires highly desirable gems for jewelry, since people want gems with durability. Considered to be the best sapphires today are the ones mined in Sri Lanka. The blue sapphires from Sri Lanka, now referred to as Ceylon Sapphires (and Sri-Lankan Sapphires) are known for being lighter, brighter, and more vivid than the dark blue sapphires that come from other countries. Sapphires are seen as the guardians of love. When given as a gift, sapphires enhance love and tunes your spirits to one another. Also, they have been used to banish envy and jealousy as well as promote fidelity in marriage.
