Each month of the year has its own specific stone – these stones are called “The 12 Birthstones”. The 12 Birthstones is an old ancient myth which derives from the belief that gemstones have special powers connected to the corresponding astrological sign and each of the 12 months of the year.
Each birthstone is said to have special and unique therapeutic effect if worn in the particular month allocated to the stone. Over the past decades the tradition of the birthstones has changed, and a more modern belief, dating back to the 18th century, claims that the meaning of the 12 birthstones is that one should wear a stone relevant to the one’s birth month, and that by doing this, the stone will be protective, and keep the wearer healthy and prosperous.
In 1912 a modern list of the birthstones were created by the National Association of Jewelers in USA – here the birthstones were defined and every stone were allocated to a specific month. Today a birthstone is still considered to be a very personal piece of gemstone, and they are a great gift for a person who would treasure and value the meaning and the history that each gemstone holds.
