What are Zodiac Birthstones?

Zodiac gemstones are also known as Astral stones. The word Astral is derived from Astrology and has been an important part of holistic beliefs for centuries. Astrology is not a science, but was created originally as a method for telling time. It is used to tell us when one time has passed and also to let us know when another is coming, essentially acting as the calendar for the universe.

These periods of time are divided into twelve sections, which are believed to represent the twelve tribes of Israel in the book of Exodus. Each section, or Zodiac sign is associated with a particular gemstone. The idea is that your Astrological sign is linked to a gemstone on earth that enables the wearer to tap into his or her hidden power. Gemstones also have holistic meanings and healing characteristics to benefit the mind and body.

Difference Between Zodiac Birthstones and Modern Birthstones

Zodiac birthstones, which are based on astrological signs can be different from Modern Birthstones, which are related to the calendar birth month. Our present calendar month system was not known at the time of Exodus, and it wasn’t until 1912 that a more standardized version of gemstones was introduced by the Jewelers of America. This list is now followed throughout most of the world. Ultimately, the choice of astrological or modern birthstone is a matter of personal belief and faith. Experts say: “The best way to assign a stone is to find the one that talks to you.”

Many people believe that wearing the gemstone assigned to your birth month brings good luck and is a charm that carries protective powers. Let’s take a look at some of the various gemstones and methods to determine which gemstone is perfect for you.

Below we offer a list of the Zodiac signs and the dates associated with them as well as the assigned gemstone. You may decide to choose your Zodiac gemstone or your birth month stone, or both!
