Learn about your Birthstone and it’s Healing Powers


Birthstones are precious or semi-precious gemstones associated with each month of the year. My birthstone for December is turquoise, while my lucky sister born in April gets a diamond as her birthstone. Depending on the culture a variety of gemstones have been identified as birthstones.  There is no universal agreement as to a single, particular birthstone for each month. In the United States, however, the National Association of Jewelers designated a modern birthstone list in 1912. Only recently have we seen two attempts to change it, both associated with the gemstone tanzanite. So lucky me, they added tanzanite as a birthstone for December, even though it already had two birthstones (turquoise and zircon). Now, I have one more excuse to buy jewelry.
