What’s My Lucky Stone?
TL;DR A study of crystals and stones reveals that each of us has birth date stones and lucky stones according to date of birth that go by month and also by astrological sign. More than stones of love or magical stones for love and marriage, your gemstone by date of birth can become your personal power stone you draw energy and strength from all of your life. “What is my lucky gemstone by date of birth?” Read on and find out!

What’s My Gemstone?


That all depends. There are technically three ways this article will discuss to decide what your personal gemstone is. First, some people will say the stone corresponding to their birth month is their stone. Next, people will choose stones for astrological signs as their personal stones. Finally, people will spend time with the stones they personally feel drawn to, regardless of birthstone by month or horoscope gemstones, and decide for themselves.

How people decide what stones are ascribed to months or the zodiac signs gemstones is based on what they read that somebody they probably never met decided. The zodiac signs stones may have been decided as early as ancient Babylonian times, and more recently, in 2016, the Jewelers of America and the American Gem Trade Association added spinel as a gem for the month of August. Hinduism has their own list of what stones go by birth and Great Britain has a different idea than the Hindus or Americans of which stone stands for what month.

So, taking into account everything you read that everybody else, including the author of this article writes or says, make your own decision of what your personal stone is. There is no one right way to decide your own personal gemstone, and anything suggested in this article is just that- only a suggestion. Take your time deciding, trying many different gemstones, and have a selection of personal gemstones if having just one isn’t enough.

Gemstones for Birth Months

What are the stones of the month and what do they mean to you? In the Biblical book of Exodus, the Priest Aaron wore a breastplate that had twelve different gemstones in it, representing the twelve tribes of Israel. It is believed that somewhere along the line this was changed to stones for birth months and originally people wore each month colors stones to draw power from it during its corresponding month. It somehow switched from wearing a stone per month to wearing the stone corresponding to your own birth month gemstones to draw power from your own stone.

January
