Recently on the subway I saw two women talking about gems and birthstones. One of them was holding a bunch of crystals in her hand and looked really passionate about them.
I don’t know about you guys but knowing all about your birthstone used to be a really big deal back when I was in middle school. So I decided to finally do some research about ALL the birthstones& here’s what I found:
You are a strong person inside & out. Garnet is a protective energy stone and is considered a stone of commitment, honesty, hope, and faith.
You know who you are and you’re proud of it! Conforming is something you’ll never do.
The aquamarine gemstone is associated with courage, loyalty, and friendship.
The diamond, in addition to being a symbol of everlasting love, also brings courage.
The Emerald is a symbol of rebirth, and is believed to grant foresight, good fortune, and youth.
Pearl signifies faithfulness, friendship and loyalty; and considered a symbol of purity, chastity and modesty.
Rubies are considered the king of gems and represent love, health and wisdom, and good fortune.
The Peridot is the definition of strength. It also is associated with prosperity, growth, dignity and love.
Sapphire was thought to guard against evil, and symbolizes wisdom, faith, and power.
Opal symbolizes faithfulness and confidence. It is always known as the “peace stone.”
Topaz is known for its associated qualities of strength, tenacity, dedication and resilience. It is believed to balance emotions and thoughts for a harmonious lifestyle.
Turquoise is a symbol of wealth and prosperity& a symbol of good fortune and success, and it is believed to relax the mind.
