Uncountable excavations and ancient records decoded by historians and gemologists uncovered the blue sapphire’s presence and the effects of wearing blue sapphire rooted deep within history.

American novelist Edwin Streeter believes that blue sapphires originated in Persia. According to him, Ancient Persians believed that the world rested on Blue Sapphire and the sky got its hue from the crystals of blue sapphire. While Greeks used blue sapphire as a medium to connect with the higher powers, the Cingalese aboriginals believed wearing a star sapphire during long travels could protect them against witchcraft.

As per beliefs, Garuda Purana Achar Kanda, chapter 68 (Agastya Samhita) mentions the origin of this coveted gem stating diverse neelam benefits, how to test its genuineness, and the rules to wear it.

Experts suggest that neelam is an extremely powerful gemstone. Being a precious gemstone, blue sapphires don't take much time to react. One can almost start experiencing the positive effects of wearing blue sapphire within three months. Some of the known mayuri neelam stone benefits include bringing individuals out of financial stagnation, bringing instant success, fame & popularity.

1. Surging Fortunes: Neelam is reputed to bring about unparalleled success in business, employment, and independent initiatives. By wearing a sapphire stone, businesspeople or professionals who are experiencing career stagnation can quickly end the impasse and turn around their fortunes.

One of the prime examples that come to mind is of Bollywood's veteran actor Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. Did you know there was a time when Amitabh Bachchan was on the brink of bankruptcy? This was around 1999 when the angry young man put all his money in his own production venture called Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd (ABCL). He was neck-deep in debt of approximately over 90 crores and people would continuously land at his doorstep threatening him to return their money. It was probably during these times that Amitabh started wearing his infamous neelam ring. Shortly after wearing his blue sapphire, Amitabh Bachchan got the offer from Kaun Banega Crorepati, a life-changing show which ended all his financial troubles and made him the star of the millennium. Fast back to today, amitabh bachchan blue sapphire ring has made him worldwide popular.

2. Instant Fame & Popularity: Whether pursuing a career in the arts or a career in politics, neel mani stone benefits those who want to grow their political pursuits. Blue Sapphire blesses the wearer with enhanced communication skills, acknowledging one’s talent and dedication, which in turn brings them fame and prosperity.

3. Brings Discipline: GemPundit’s CEO, Nitin Yadav is a staunch believer of the philosophy that gemstones without one’s belief are nothing but rocks. One has to have strong faith in the power of blue sapphire and the emerging neelam ratna benefits if one wants to enjoy the rich fruits of these wonders of the heavens. However, dedication, devoted discipline, and patience are key to availing the advantageous results of neelam gemstone.

The neelam stone benefits hold a significant place in the world of astrology. Blue sapphire is closely associated with Saturn (second-largest planet in the solar system). In Vedic astrology, the associations, however, go much deeper than that. It is believed that Saturn is ruled by Shani, the God of Karma, Divine Retribution and Justice. He is known as one of the most powerful, cruellest, and secretive Gods. He is also the universal judge of all entire beings.

Once, Shani grew angry because his father (Lord Sun) did not behave well with his mother (Chhaya). The ever so strained relationship with his father made Shani become cold, dry, binding, defensive, and conservative. Bringing us back to the gemstones, anyone who has a weak Saturn position in their horoscope tends to absorb these characteristics making anyone’s life painful, impossible to succeed, filled with ailments, and detachment.

Wearing blue sapphire benefits in eliminating the unfavourable influences caused due to bad Shani positioning in the horoscope. In Western Culture, Saturn is believed to have the keys to heaven and hell.

In the eastern world, blue sapphires, also known as Neelamani, Indraneel, Indraneelam, Neela Pukhraj, etc., are highly famous. They are called "Neelam Stone" in Hindi. People have a great deal of faith in this gem's capacity to address the financial, professional, and psychological issues that arise during the period of Shani-Saadesati.


The positive effects of wearing blue sapphire also include incredible benefits on body and mind. Sapphires help individuals spiritually by leading them towards life's goals. It is believed that one can access the etheric worlds through sapphires, ultimately connecting them to the Divine Powers. This can be a deeply personal journey that results in enlightenment, self-realisation, and a heightened understanding of spiritual and metaphysical realities. Sapphires also give off a relaxing energy that is beneficial for prayer and meditation.


Sapphires also promote wisdom and a greater understanding of oneself, which helps to bring out emotional stability. This helps us view circumstances more objectively and rationally and enables us to act on reason rather than on the spur of the moment or rashly. Additionally, neelam stone benefits include inspiring love and forgiveness as well as relationship commitment.



One of the most prominent indraneelam stone benefits can be found in the Feng Shui World. In the culture, Gen is mostly understood to be the area associated with self-nurturing and knowledge and highly connected to dark blue colour. Introducing a gemstone piece like blue sapphire at home is said to increase the depth of one’s knowledge, learn new skills, and deepen the spiritual pursuit.


In ancient Greek culture, the blue sapphire was highly regarded as a symbol of wisdom, truth, and spiritual enlightenment. The stone was associated with the god Apollo, who was considered the embodiment of these qualities.

According to Greek mythology, the god Apollo wore a blue sapphire on his forehead, which gave him the ability to see into the future and make wise decisions. As a result, the neelam stone effects were associated with divine practices and were believed to enhance the powers of the oracle.

The blue sapphire was also associated with the goddess Athena, who was the patron of the city of Athens and the goddess of wisdom, strategy, and crafts. Athena was often depicted wearing a sapphire on her breastplate, which was believed to give her strength and clarity of thought.

Overall, the neelam gem benefits have been given their due credit in history and considered a powerful talisman that could enhance mental clarity, insight, and intuition. It was often used in amulets, jewellery, and other decorative objects, and was believed to bring good fortune and protection to those who wore it.

The human body is composed mostly of the five natural elements of Earth, Water, Space, Fire, and Wind. Typically, each planetary position is said to have a direct influence on our physical and spiritual being. Additionally, the unfavourable placement of planets in our birth charts can also be the reason for unceasing challenges in one’s life. Astrologers suggest wearing a gemstone as a remedy to reduce the malefic impacts of these ill-placed natal planets.

However, each gem is associated with a different planet in the solar system and has unique abilities. For example, wearing blue sapphire benefits in enhancing the abilities of the body to absorb positive energy from Saturn. This energy forms compatibility in all five elements of the body, which improves the health of a person. You will have an optimistic attitude towards life due to a healthy soul and body.

The wearers ultimately feel the positive benefits of wearing neelam like overcoming financial troubles and enjoy happiness in your family. One also starts to get the support of people they need. Blue Sapphire increases one’s focus towards their duties resulting in desired rewards of your efforts.

Kashmir Blue Sapphire is considered to be the most valuable blue sapphire out of all its origins. Other popular sources of obtaining blue sapphire are: Sri Lanka, Thailand, Myanmar (Burma), Madagascar, Ethiopia, West Africa, and Cambodia. The best quality Kashmir blue sapphire was obtained from the Zanskar range of the Himalayas. However, consistent mining from 1882 to 1887 has resulted in depletion of Kashmir sapphire from this origin. This means that most of the Kashmir blue sapphire present in the market today was mined during that very brief period of 5 years and now only a limited quantity exists and circulates in the market. The best way to identify an original Kashmir blue sapphire is to check its colour. Kashmir blue sapphires show a deep blue velvety cornflower blue hue at all times.
