Gemstones have not only a material value. The month of birth determines which stone can accompany us through life as a source of strength. These birthstones, it is said, have very individual properties that can have a empowering effect on their wearer.
Month Stone December: Turquoise
The turquoise is a mostly opaque gemstone that ranges from blue to green and is often crisscrossed with veins of rock in which it was formed. The name of this gemstone is derived from the French term "pierre tourques", which translates as "Turkish stone". Based on this translation, it is believed that the first turquoise gemstones were discovered in Turkey.
The turquoise is said to stand for perseverance, assertiveness and a quick grasp, as well as wisdom, calm, protection and is said to bring good luck.
The ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Native Americans considered it a protective stone against accidents and evil influences. Hildegard von Bingen also discovered its healing properties and included it among her twelve main stones.
How did today's birthstones come into being in general? In 1912, the Jewelers of America (a non-profit jewelry association) created an overview of the months and the corresponding reference minerals in order to cope with the multitude of monthly stones.
