Journey of Month Birthstones
In the old and new both testimony of the Bible, gemstones were given significant importance. Especially in Exodus, the Jewish high priest wore a breastplate which contained 12 stones. On the shield, three stones were placed in each four rows to symbolize the 12 tribes of Israel. In Revelation, the last part of the Bible, St. John revealed the truth. He stated that the New Jerusalem has 12 beautiful gemstones laid in its foundation.
Flavius Josephus linked particular gemstones to the symbols of the zodiac throughout the first century. According to the twelve months of a year, every birthstone was endorsed to a month. It was believed that if a person wears the exact stone every month will surely get access to exceptional magical or healing powers. Some birthstones are expensive because they are very rare and others are semiprecious. There was a craze among the people to collect birthstones of their own. Some lucky or powerful individuals who could manage such luxury tried their best to collect all 12 gems so that they could protect and empower themselves throughout the year.
Finally the same birthstone each month for everyone concept was replaced by single birthstone for each month for the person who got birth on that month concept. Suppose, Turquoise is your birthstone then you must wear Turquoise not any other stone otherwise you will not get the advantages. So, there’s nothing to do about this because a person cannot change his / her birthstone as it is habitually connected with the month of the person’s birth.
There is a saying that, in the prehistoric times all the birthstones had both astrological and calendar features and values. Moreover, each birthstone has its very special traits to guard its holder and get success. Therefore each one of the stones has a rich impression and significance which is not present in common stones. Now the question how to make use of them? Just simply wear the one you got according to the month you took birth or simply get one to present your loving person. That person will keep this gift as a symbol of love.
