Birthstones are gemstones that harmonize with calendar months or zodiac signs to help balance, enhance and support specific energies.
Do you know your birthstone?
Our physical bodies are built from stardust (minerals, for those less dreamy!) and it makes sense that we would be sensitive to the movements of stars and planets; astrology is the oldest science recorded by humans on earth! Gemstones and crystals have been paired with astrology by many diverse cultures for thousands and thousands of years. The currently accepted birthstone lists are based on, and agreed upon, by a wide variety of sources, including the Hebrew Bible, sacred Indian Vedic texts and ancient Greek recordings.
If you have interest in engaging with the specific crystals to your birth date, this is a great place to start!

My birthstones are Sapphire & Lapis Lazuli, since I'm a September Virgo, but I have a particular taste for Topaz and Citrine stones. Is your birthstone your favorite crystal? xo,
