Identifying the Gemstones for Your Birthday

January: Garnet

Garnet is found all over the world, and while it is most generally associated with red, it is actually found in a range of colors and chemical formulas, each with its own unique set of spiritual properties. According to legends and mythology, garnet is one of the oldest talismans. It was valued not merely as an aesthetic jewel but also for its powerful healing and protecting properties.

February: Amethyst

Amethyst has long been prized for its striking beauty and fabled abilities to stimulate and soothe the mind and emotions. In today’s definitions, it is a semi-precious stone, but to the ancients, it was a “gem of fire,” a precious stone valued as much as a diamond at times throughout history.

Aquamarine

March: Aquamarine

Aquamarine makes you think of clear, calm seas and the excitement and relaxation that come with them. It is relaxing, cleansing, and tranquil, and it fosters truth, trust, and letting go. Aquamarine was thought to be the jewel of mermaids in ancient legend, and sailors used it as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness, and protection. It was also thought to be a stone of immortal youth and bliss. Today, it protects all who go by, over, or near water, and it facilitates a clear and emotional connection.

April: Diamond

Though it is the color of ice and a winter jewel, diamond is a crystal of light; its high-frequency energy is dispersed into flashing prisms of bright “fire” that represent the sun. It is a spiritual stone that activates the crown and etheric chakras and is a sign of perfection and illumination. It opens the mind to the “new” and “possible” and encourages creativity, imagination, and resourcefulness. A diamond placed on the third eye promotes psychic development and is a useful tool for remote vision, telepathic communication, and clairvoyance.

Emerald

May: Emerald

Emerald, often known as the “Stone of Successful Love,” awakens and nurtures the heart and the heart chakra. Its calming effect heals on all levels and gives the spirit new life and energy. It is a stone of infinite patience and inspiration. It also stands for unity, compassion, and love that never ends. Emerald encourages companionship and equilibrium between spouses and is especially recognized for bringing household joy, contentment, and loyalty. In ancient times, it was given to the goddess Venus because it was thought to keep love safe.

June: Pearl

The finish of this top-quality stone, consisting of calcium carbonate, primarily came from mollusks and was created under the depths of deep sea water. They vary widely in size, color, luster, and the size of their pores; these are the main categories for grading a pearl. This gemstone comes in shades of white, black, silver, pink, and golden blue. These stones, though, are highly sensitive to perspiration, perfume, and other liquids that contain high levels of acid.

July: Ruby

Ruby has been a symbol of love, safety, and good luck in many cultures for a long time. It is said that if Ruby were cast into water, it would cause it to boil, and if cut and pushed into wax, it would melt the wax. It was worn as an amulet or charm to fend off sickness and disease, warn of oncoming danger, keep the body safe, and ward off grief and foolish ideas. It was said to provide its possessor with tranquility, drive away dreadful visions, suppress libido, and aid in dispute resolution. According to Burmese folklore, putting a ruby into the flesh renders one entirely invulnerable.

August: Peridot

Peridot is one of only two gems (the diamond being the other) created in the Earth’s upper mantle and brought to the surface by earthquakes and volcanoes. Other Peridots have extraterrestrial origins, found in rare pallasite meteorites produced 4.5 billion years ago, leftovers of our solar system’s beginning. On the moon, Mars, and comet dust that Stardust returned in 2006, NASA’s Global Surveyor discovered olivine, a type of peridot. The ancients believed Peridot was thrown from the sun and had healing abilities.

September: Sapphire

Sapphire is a stone of wisdom, monarchy, prophecy, and divine favor. It’s related to sacred items and is regarded as the gem of gems in practically every faith. Ancient and medieval people believed heavenly sapphires brought protection, good fortune, and spiritual insight. It represented strength, benevolence, and wisdom.

October: Opal

The name was derived from the Indian word for stone and is known for the “floating fire” within. Opal serves as a prism in the aura, delivering a broad spectrum of light energy, relaxing and cleaning the emotional body, and enhancing the will to live and joy of earthly existence. It inspires love and passion by igniting optimism, enthusiasm, and creativity. Opal makes you more aware of the universe and boosts your intuition and insight, but it is also a protective stone for inner work, meditations, and shamanic journeys.

November: Citrine

Citrine enhances manifestation, imagination, and willpower. Warm, comforting, stimulating, and life-giving, it carries the sun’s vitality. It clears the mind and stirs the soul like spring sunlight, stimulating the chakras. Its frequency promotes creativity and imagination and sustains dream-to-reality transformation. Citrine’s bright golden energy promotes vitality, new beginnings, and new endeavors.

December: Turquoise

Turquoise, the talisman of monarchs, shamans, and warriors, is possibly the earliest stone in human history. Strong and impenetrable, yet comforting to the touch and healing to the eye, it is a stone of protection that looks as though it were cut from an azure heaven and dropped to earth.
