The wearing of birthstones is thought to bring good luck, good health, and protection. Astrologers long ago attributed supernatural powers to certain gemstones. Birthstones are a collection of precious gems that correlate to one's birth month. Traditionally, each gem holds a different meaning thought to hold true to its wearer. There are a few months where multiple birthstones symbolize various characteristics, giving its wearer multiple choices in the gem they choose. Each of these birthstones has a fascinating history and continues to bring health and wellness to its wearers from all parts of the world.
