6 Facts You Should Know About Blue Sapphire

6 Facts You Should Know About Blue Sapphire

Sapphire is one of the most precious stones in the world. From big celebrities to everyday people, sapphire holds a prestigious position when it comes to showing class and luxury.

Among all the sapphire stones, blue sapphire is considered as one of the commonly used stones. Blue sapphire is considered to be the fastest acting gemstone. According to popular belief, it has the quickest impact on your luck, wealth, and other areas of your life.

Here are a few of the reasons you should start using a blue sapphire:

1. Blue Sapphire Has Astrological Significance

Astrologically, blue sapphire is part of the Saturn and Saturn periods can actually make or break an individual’s life. This stone, therefore, holds greater astrological significance when compared to other stones.


Saturn is considered to be a ruling planet for Capricorn and Aquarius. Astrologers suggest that people with Aquarius and Capricorn zodiac signs must use this gemstone.

It is also suggested that this is the stone for the people born in September.

2. Original Blue Sapphire Is From Kashmir

Original blue sapphire is from Kashmir and you might not be able to find one directly from the region. Popular brands available in the market are often of the lower quality variety.

The original blue sapphire of the Kashmir origin is also the most expensive stone in the world.


3. Blue Sapphire Is Worn On The Middle Finger

Though it is not mandatory or necessary, the blue sapphire is often worn on the middle finger. This is suggested due to astrological beliefs that wearing it on the middle finger gives you the most benefits.

Ultimately, however, it’s your choice.

4. When Buying A Blue Sapphire, Always Consider The 4 Cs

Buying an original blue sapphire is expensive and many suppliers can provide you fake or low-quality stones too.

While buying a blue sapphire, always consider four things:


  • color
  • clarity
  • cut
  • carat

Although sapphire comes in various colors, the most precious color is blue. Clarity basically refers to how transparent the gemstone is and how it is emitting the light. While examining the cut, always make sure it is finely cut and in a manner in which increases the return of light.

The price of blue sapphire depends on the karat and increases incrementally in 2, 3, and 4 carat sizes.

There are also synthetic sapphires that are very similar to the original. Make sure that when you pay, you do not buy a synthetic one at the price of an original.

5. Use With Gold Or Silver

Blue sapphire should be used with gold or silver rings. The minimum cut size should be 2 carats and 5 carat size is considered as the ideal size to wear.


The use of gold along with blue sapphire is considered as an ideal combination to wear because both tend to support each other’s aesthetic value and significance. If you can afford it, try to use blue sapphire over a gold ring.

6. High-Quality Sapphires Are Issued With Certificate of Origin

A genuine and high-quality supplier of blue sapphire will always issue you a certificate of origin.

Regardless of from whom you are buying, you should always ask for the certificate. Make sure the certificate is original and issued by the gem’s society of the country from where you are buying the same.

Blue sapphire is expensive and precious, so make sure you do all your homework before buying one. Whether you are buying for your engagement ring or just wearing it strictly for astrological purposes, always focus on quality.

Make sure to impress the world with a genuine and high-quality blue sapphire stone bought from correct sources that are ethically bought from certified suppliers.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.


3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.


6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.


9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.


Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
