BIRTHSTONES

Discover the Meaning and Talismanic Powers of Birthstones

If you’re interested in astrology or exploring the spiritual side of your birthdate, understanding gemstones and birthstones can help you learn more about yourself, your personality and even your future.  People have been using colored stones as part of cultural practices, ceremonies and religious rituals for thousands of years, and some people believe that certain birthstones have magical powers and properties.  So much so, that they have been associated with the planets and can amass planetary powers when the stars are aligned in a certain way. 

THE ENERGY WITHIN BIRTHSTONES

George Frederick Kunz is one of the most well-known gem experts, a self-educated man who served as the gem expert at Tiffany & Co. for most of his life.  In his book, Planetary Influences and Therapeutic Uses of Precious Stones, George Kunz talks about the talismanic effects of stones and how the signs of the zodiac are connected to the formation of different types of stone.  His theory, along with thousands of gemologist and birthstone experts, is that specific gemstones are “assigned” to each of us, and speak to our nature, our personality and other characteristics.
