JANUARY - Garnet

The rich ruby red of the garnet looks warm and inviting it’s true
But Garnet is derived from the word pomegranate and has other colours in it too
In fact the Garnet is a crystal said to give protection and courage to the wearer
Warriors going to battle in the middle ages embedded them in their shields so such a gift given is from a generous carer

Birthstone Poems

JUNE - Pearl, Moonstone, Alexandrite

Pearl is a symbol of feminine wisdom and we think of them being white
But pearls come in many colours from pink to black as night
Pearls are said to bring out the best in us and are often the choice of brides on their wedding day
I think it is more to do with the simplicity of the creamy white of the pearls making them perfect for your birthday

by Margmax 2011

The Moonstone originates from Sri Lanka and is a transparent pale blue
However from India it can be beige-brown, green, orange or brown to
It is the stone of emotional balance, wishes and intuition, fertility and growth
A choice between a Moonstone or a pearl as a birthstone why not have them both

by Margmax 2011

Named after Russian Tsar Alexander II a young gemstone very rare
So if you receive this birthstone as a gift the giver sure does care
Special because it changes colour blueish green in daylight purplish red in incandescent light
Treasure this stone as it brings value into your life

by Margmax 2011

JULY - Ruby

The Ruby can be pinkish to red but we always think of it as the saying “ruby red”
Ancients considered it came from the sun and gave life force and fire so it’s said
A birthstone such as this would no doubt deserve a hug and a kiss
But if you are single treat yourself you don’t need a Mr to own this

AUGUST - Peridot, Sardonyx

Coloured vivid green the peridot is an ideal summer stone for jewellery wear
Also known as Olivine and Chrysolite a good gift choice to show you care
It was chosen by ancient egyptians because of it’s healing powers worn as jewellery to ward off evil spirits it’s proclaimed
So for a summer birthday a peridot should be a one to be claimed

Birthstone Poems nice touch in your gift card

Pink Tourmaline
Found in many places around the world but one of the few gemstones USA is famous for producing mainly pink which is birthstone for October
No two tourmalines are the same and their colour can change with the light which is why it suits all moods and is said to be the gemstone of friendship and love so a good gift for her
An old egyptian legend states that due to the long journey the tourmaline had from the centre of the earth it passed over a rainbow and is still known today as the gemstone of the rainbow
So why not give your loved one(friend) a gift that is known for its rainbow colours and pick a colour that for them will glow

NOVEMBER - Citrine, Yellow Topaz

Named after the french word Citron which simply means yellow and also called yellow quartz
In ancient times they believed it warded off snake venom and also evil thoughts
Your loved one(friend) may not have a use for warding off snake venom but could find nice yellow birthstone fun
What better on a dark November day birthday then a cheerful bright bit of jewellery the colour of the sun

Yellow Topaz

Was used by many nationalities in different meanings, the Egyptian's connected it with their sun god Ra
In India and Europe it was connected with the planet Jupiter, in Mexico to ascertain the truth and in Africa bushmen used it to connect with the spirits from afar
So if you wish jewellery that is spiritual than the Yellow Topaz is a good choice for a November birthday
So wear a bit of sunshine, the colour of spring flowers or of fresh mowen hay

Birthstone Poems how thoughtful

DECEMBER - Blue Topaz, Turquoise

Blue Topaz
Topaz comes in a variety of colours it is true but if your birthday is December than blue is the topaz for you
Blue Topaz became widespread only in the past century and has to be irradiated and heat treated to artificially create the colour blue
So of your two birthstones December blue topaz is a good choice for you
Or if you cannot decide have the other one to

by Margmax 2011


Turquoise is an ancient powerful stone mined from 3000bc by the egyptian's and greatly revered as a sacred stone by Tibetan Shamans and the persian empire
So a good birthstone with powerful roots fulfilling all your desire
Many cultures consider it protective bestowing health and strength to the wearer but if the gem changed colour the prophesy was doom
Turquoise can change colour but fear not the change is due to sunlight or acid in the skin and does not impend doom
