Its depth of color, rarity and hardness have made sapphires among the most sought-after and highly celebrated stones in both modern and ancient history. The religious rulers of ancient Persia believed the sky was painted blue via a reflection of the highly-prized sapphire stone, while ancient Western lore holds that the ten commandments were first written as carvings into a sapphire rough. The Catholic church adopted the sapphire as the ecclesiastical stone of choice in the 12th Century, and royalty from King Solomon to Prince Charles have employed the stone in the making of rings of great significance. The Sinhalese of Sri Lanka, where this particular stone originates, believed sapphires had talismanic properties. A sapphire stone was given by the Sinhalese people to the British explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton, who carried it with him until his death, and famously accredited much of his good fortune to the stone''s supposed power.
