Birthstones have been a part of our traditions for thousands of years. Ancient cultures believed that these precious and semi-precious stones had magical powers and mystical qualities. In fact, the ruling classes often made sure that they had one of each stone in their possession in order to wear during the appropriate months.In modern times, most people do not believe that birthstones exude spiritual power, however,  we still cherish the idea of having a special gem associated with each birthday.

The birthstones that represent each month are as follows:

February – Amethyst (lavender purple)
March – Aquamarine (bright blue)
April – Diamond (white and crystal)
May – Emerald (green)
