His raiment is blue, and blue is the fire of his eyes, and his sceptre is of sapphire, which the Noldor wrought for him; and he was appointed to be the vicegerent of Ilúvatar, King of the world of Valar and Elves and Men, and the chief defence against the evil of Melkor.

–About Manwë, The Silmarillion

Sapphires are one of the rare types of gems that can be found while mining in Middle-Earth. They are a bright blue colour.

Obtaining

Sapphire ore.

As with all the gemstones, the best way to obtain gemstones is to mine them yourself. Another option for those of you who don't like mining is to go and buy them from the various traders that sell them.
