Birthstones: Discover your birthday month's stone and what it means

Each of the twelve months of the year has its own birthstone. These stones have got your back, and can super-charge you with natural good vibes.

Every birthstone is unique, taking hundreds if not thousands of years to form in the ground, developing its own properties in the process. Everything in the universe vibrates, including rocks and gems. When we hold a gemstone closely, its' unique vibrations tune in to our own and synch in, harmonising our energy naturally. This invisible, but powerful, connection is the conduit to tuning in to the gemstone’s properties, so it can lend us its powers, balancing our energy with its own.

Many different cultures have dabbled with the idea that certain gemstones represent different months of the year or zodiac signs, and possess mystical and medicinal qualities.

Your birthstone can work as a talisman. You could just get a pretty pendant for yourself or as a gift to a dear friend or your partner. Here's a look at what birthstone you are, based on the month you were born. Put this sparkly gem on your next birthday list!

January's birthstone: Garnet

Garnet is January peoples' ally in life, helping you to let go of things and welcome in fresh energy. It balances you, adding whatever is needed to make you feel grounded, be it passion or serenity, courage or resilience. The more you clean and polish garnet, the stronger it resonates.

February's birthstone: Amethyst

Amethyst is the crystal of dreams and meditation and is a perfect ally for studious, analytical February people. Amethyst will help you feel focussed and calm, and direct your powers of concentration. Wear it as a pendant, keep it on your desk or by your bedside when you’re working or reading.

March's birthstone: Aquamarine 

March folk are natural empaths, often unconsciously absorbing the vibes and moods of everyone around them, so you need psychic protection. This deeply protective crystal washes away fear, bad vibes and stress and brings peace and tranquillity. Wear at all times, as a ring or pendant.

April's birthstone: Diamond

Like diamonds, April children have a dazzling personality… when they're in a good mood. Although when you feel out of sorts, everyone knows about it. Diamonds increase positive energy so, when worn, especially on the left-hand side, they can rejuvenate your naturally sunny vibes.

May's birthstone: Emerald

Emerald attracts good fortune and abundance, which is music to the ears of those with a May birthday. Emerald can also boost your resolve and mental clarity, bringing to the surface that which is unconsciously known. This crystal can aide and improve your thought processes, and get you to the right conclusion faster and easier. Use it as a meditation aide.

June's Birthstones: Pearl

Pearl has a healing energy and helps to balance out the fickle, fast-paced, optional and erratic tendencies of those born in June. Pearl brings a slow down vibe, and helps you to think twice, to reflect and consider the consequences of their words or actions before you jump into a bag of trouble. Keep a pearl close to your heart as you navigate daily life.

July's birthstone: Ruby

Rubies are all about prosperity, passion and love. They are an amplifying crystal and infuse the wearer with great courage, power and self-confidence. Those born in July can be emotional people. You can feel over-sensitive. Wearing a beautiful ruby as jewellery will help you feel happier in your own shell, promoting a deeper sense of security and self-belief that will fend off those worrying thoughts.

August's birthstone: Peridot

Peridot is a great stone of protection and defence, keeping the storm clouds at bay, and helping the wearer to overcome anxiety and sadness. August hotheads can get a little bit jealous and defensive sometimes, and your larger-than-life antics can attract unwanted criticism. Peridot will help you to let go of the past, and relieve jealousies, anger or resentments. It will keep you on the up. Store your peridot jewelry by your bedside for a peaceful night’s sleep.

September's birthstone: Sapphire

Sapphires promote wisdom, clarity and the inner calm necessary to see meaningful insights and truths, and to communicate them honestly and clearly. September people are deep thinkers, and wearing a sapphire will help you to ward off your persistent and vocal inner critic who always seems to have something to say about everything you do! 

October's birthstone: Opal

Opal brings light, luck, optimism and positivity where there is darkness or fear or doubt. It is a harmonising and balancing gem, which is what October folk need above all. You need balance in your life in order to feel calm and in control. Being a natural-born people pleaser can make it easy for you to be herded into doing things you don’t want to do. 

November's birthstone: Topaz

Wearing a Topaz, the more orange the better, helps you intense November crowd chill out and feel at peace. You can get suspicious, angry and paranoid sometimes and all at once because you have an intense, emotional sensitivity and control-freak streak that gets in the way of your relationships. Topaz takes the edge off. It represents friendship, hope and happiness, so it’s an excellent aide to you building and maintaining great relationships.

December's birthstone: Turquoise

Turquoise is an incredibly healing stone, and one of the oldest in human history; a talisman and item of jewellery for royalty, shamans, and warriors through the ages. Turquoise, due to its heritage, can help philosophical December people feel connected to your ancestral roots and the wisdom of people gone by. Use as jewellery to keep this wisdom close to you.
