Birthstones are known for its untouchable but feelingful source of inner energy and its impact on its wearer. From the centuries ago a legendary historian Josephus established relation between twelve stones in Aaron's breastplate and the twelve month of the year and twelve signs of zodiac. Do you understand what I am trying to explain?
If yes then its ok and if no then its ok too. Because I never expect all of my readers are interested in history like me.
But in short I would like to say here, in all religions including Christians, Hindu, Islams and others that Gemstones or Zodiac have relation or bonding with human beings.
In the world according to cultural ethics and experts of this field published their own birthstone list. In this list which birthstone or gemstone accepted for which month and why and what it reflect? All these information available in wikipedia already!!!
Here most of my readers belongs to UK. So I am sharing Britain's National Association of Goldsmiths defined list of birthstones which is updated recently in 2013. It is not different from ancient birthstone list defined by others but it has few alternative birthstones like for May you can use Chrysoprase instead of Emerland.
