Sapphires inside the Ravenclaw house point hourglass

A sapphire is a blue gemstone, considered valuable by Muggles. Sapphires are also used to fill the Ravenclaw house point hourglass at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There were also sapphires stored in Vault 1, Vault 2, and Vault 3 of the Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

Behind the scenes

  • Firenze's eyes were described as being "astonishingly blue... like pale sapphires."[1]
