Commonly known for its deep blue completion, Sapphire is also the birthstone of September. Sapphires come in a multitude of different colors. This Dazzling Jewel is accepted as the go-to rock for the 5th and 45th marriage anniversaries. Ancient priests and sorcerers even honored the sapphire above all gems because the stone enabled them to interpret oracles and foretell the future. This wasn’t sapphires only moment in history! Prince Charles in 1981 proposed to the late Princess Diana with this beautiful blue gemstone.

Local Gems (Kid’s Edition)
The Triangle contains many treasures! Here are some of our recommendations of things to do around town:
PLACES TO GO:
Marbles Kids Museum
Since opening its doors on September 29, 2007, Marbles has inspired kids to think critically through hands-on activities. Their mission statement speaks for itself: MARBLES SPARKS imagination, discovery, and learning through PLAY! Playing contributes to intellectual growth and much more in a young child mind and Marbles is the place to start. Crowds were blown away at the transformation the museum underwent in just 24 days after a merger between Exploris and Playspace that created Marbles. With a marble wall that wraps around the museum and illuminates at night, this museum is defiantly sight worthy for any family.
PLACES TO EAT:
Dave and Buster’s
An exquisite dining experience where they create synergy between food and art, Chef’s Palette is a restaurant you can’t miss! They also offer live music from talented local artists every weekend. One of their best specials is the Monday night $5 burgers, served with steak fries or sweet potato chips. They offer a wide variety of fine food, from delicious swordfish to pork chops to good old fashioned rib eye. They even have a gluten-free menu!
