From the ancient Egyptians to modern-day Americans, gemstones have and continue to hold massive appeal and value for millions of people across the world. This is not just because of their undeniable beauty but also because of their spiritual powers that are known to heal.

There are particular gemstones associated with each month of the year, called birthstones. Here’s what you need to know about them:

What are Birthstones?

Birthstones, as the name suggests, are special gemstones that are associated with particular birth months.

The concept of birthstones became widely accepted in America in the early 20th century when the National Association of Jewelers finalized an official list of birthstones. However, the idea itself dates all the way to the Biblical times, with many historians suggesting that the 12 stones on the Breastplate of Aaron were actually associated with the 12 months of the year.

The list of birthstones has been updated several times since its curation in 1912, but the modern list goes as follows:

 Why Should I Wear Mine?

Your birthstone can have a significant impact on your mental wellbeing. Many people believe that they possess spiritual powers that can lead to positive changes in your daily life. Here are some reasons you should wear your birthstone:

1. Healing Properties

Gemstones possess unique energies that vibrate at specific frequencies. Our minds and bodies possess similar energies as well, but unlike gemstones, our energies can become unstable and create stress and anxiety. We can use gemstones and crystals to stabilize our energy and thus heal our minds.

2. Good Luck and Protection

When you use a birthstone to heal your mental stresses, you also enable it to give you the clear mental capacity that you couldn’t access before. They bring good luck to you by allowing you to realize your potential to do great things. Many cultures also believe that gemstones offer you protection from bad energy and evil.

3. Promote Harmony

Gemstones have defined many cultural values for centuries, for example, the significance of turquoise for the Native Americans. They bring people together by promoting a sense of calmness and understanding despite our differences. As a result, they help us live harmoniously.
