Birthdays are a reason to celebrate for many people and, although most people celebrate the day they were born, all twelve months have a certain jewel associated with them. Thus, depending on the month which a person was born, they will likely be presented with gifts containing the gemstone that is associated with that specific time of year.
“Birthstones” is a term used to describe the gems that are associated with specific months. Some people believe that birthstones, month of birth, day of birth and year of birth all work together to form a person’s personality and destiny. There is no science to prove any such beliefs and so they are regarded by most people as urban legends. However, it is still fun for people to know their astrological sign and gemstone merely as a means of amusement.
The month and day in which a person is born likely has very little effect on how they will behave and who they will become in the future. However, the gemstones that are associated with every month are absolutely as precious as the legends claim them to be. Precious stones like amethysts and sapphires are worth money and they also have interesting histories. Additionally, they are also extremely beautiful!
