Birthstones August 30, 2016 – Posted in: gemstones – Tags: , , ,

Traditionally, each month of the year is associated with a particular stone. For example, the birthstone for July (my birthday month) is Ruby, while the lucky ones born in April have diamond as their birthstone.

Below is a list of Modern Birthstones, Mystical, and Ayurvedic Birthstones for each month.  For Emeralds I like to use Green Onyx, since it has a similar vibration, as well as Blue Kynite for September Sapphires.
