LOVE THE STONE, BE THE STONE. It might not be your birthday, but that's no reason for you to not be all about your gemstone and all the other ones! Regardless of if you were born in February or August, your birthstone and the countless others have particular meanings. Which gemstone do you need to protect you?
When it comes to gemstones, our first introduction is probably through our birth. While we're usually busy grouping ourselves into zodiac signs, there's also the gemstones that get assigned to every month. If you were born in April, you'd be diamond. For those born in September, they'd be the blue sapphire. Although many people appreciate these stones for their beautiful colors, there's a lot more meaning behind them!
Gemstones are often used by those who believe they have a deeper, spiritual function. While some believe they have healing properties, many others believe that they can protect them from bad energies.
If you need a bit of emotional healing, you might go with rose quartz. It is also meant to help strengthen love and give you compassion. For those who need to keep a clear mind, you'd probably have amethyst protecting you. This gemstone is meant to help keep you sober, conscious, and aware. Will moonstones give you patience or will malachite protect you from low self-esteem? There's only one way to find out!
