The concept of having a birthstone – a crystal or gemstone associated with the time of your birth – is not a new one, it was referred to in the Old Testament (book of Exodus).
There were references found in 1st and 5th Century writings where it was proposed that each stone had special powers associated with its respective astrological sign – and that wearing the stone during the dates of that corresponding sign would have therapeutic or talismanic benefits.
These days most people (even those who aren’t really into crystals) know what their birthstone is as discovering someones birthstone and giving it to them as a gift for a new born baby or birthday is a sweet tradition that has been upheld for generations.
As you can see below, sometimes people have 2 gemstones attributed to their birthday – lucky them – they get to chose which one they are drawn to!
It is also said that each Zodiac Sign has it’s own lucky flower – look through the bottom list below to find yours!
