Birthstones & Astrological Uses of Gemstones


A birthstone is a gemstone that is linked with one’s date of birth, and wearing that birthstone is considered to bring good health and luck. Some believe that certain gemstones have supernatural powers and are in sync with planets. Many cultures originally assigned a gemstone to mark a person’s birth and their corresponding zodiac. However over time, this tradition has shifted from zodiac signs to calendar months.

The origin of birthstones can be traced back to ancient astrology. Over the centuries various birthstone lists have been created and used. The one most commonly used today is based on a list first popularized by the US jewelry industry in the 1950s.

On the basis of a calendar year, gemstones are categorized as:
