Birthstones Are special Stones for everyone
Giving the gift of birthstone jewelry, or proudly wearing it yourself is truly special and magical. That is because the history of birthstones is surrounded with mystery, and that adds to the value.
the history of birthstones is surrounded with mystery:one of the first times they are mentioned is in the Bible in Exodus 28: 17-21 where the Lord of Israel was to have told Moses “Fashion a breast-piece for making decisions–the work of a skilled craftsman……..and in verse 21 we read “There are to be twelve stones, one for each of the names of the sons of Israel, each engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes of Israel.” The original stones listed were : ruby, topaz, beryl, turquoise, sapphire, emerald, jacinth, agate, amethyst, chrysolite, onyx and jasper.
These lovely, mystical birthstones – at least one for each month – make jewelry fun and meaningful. Various systems of birthstones have existed for years, although jewelers currently use a system that has been in place since 1912.
As you read on you will learn that there are several birthstone systems that came into fashion and then fell out of style. I focused on the birthstones that were accepted by the National Association of Jewelers in 1912. There are beautiful birthstones for every year.
The more I learn about rocks, stones and gems the more I love them. I cannot attest to to all the various claims of those who love crystals about which stone to use for which purpose, but I do feel energy around them. I hope you have fun learning about the birthstones in your life!

Birthstone Jewelry is Perfect for Gift-Giving the Year Round
Do you have a special Christmas gift to give? Don’t give a Christmas tree ornament – give a finger ornament full of precious jewels!
The ring is the most popular gift for Christmas, birthdays and Mother’s Day. My birthstone is the ruby, my brother’s and sister’s the aquamarine and bloodstone. I think that would make a beautiful ring.
My first son also has the March birthstones, and my eldest son the pearl. I am going to be giving them hints about this when ever they have got past the allowance state to earning their own wages.
The Crystal Bible is a great resource for learning about birthstones and all other gems
All birthstones are gemstones and crystals – and they are all purported to have powers. There is no better source of this information than The Crystal Bible.
I came into contact with this book first at a huge jewel and gem table at Pantheacon. Pantheacon is a huge pagan celebration where jewelry and gems are very important because it is believed that stones and jewels are very powerful. The woman who was selling the crystals and gems truly believes that they are very powerful, and every stone came with a description of what the stone delivered. When I asked her how she got the information she showed me an extremely well used copy of this book – in fact it was dog-eared and held together by tape.
The author of The Crystal Bible is Judy Hall; definitely the authority in the field of crystals and gems. British born Judy Hall is a psychic and karmic astrologer – and she has written more books about every aspects of all kinds of crystals than anyone else. Ms. Hall runs crystal healing workshops, uses crystals with her counselling and just basically is the go to person when it comes to rocks.
