Birthstone

Garnet is your birthstone. Garnets have long been carried by travelers to protect against accidents far from home. In ancient Asia and the American Southwest, Garnets were used as bullets because the glowing red color was said to increase the ferocity of a wound. Garnets in legend light up the night and protect their owners from nightmares. Noah used a garnet lantern to navigate the Ark at night. Garnet is the anniversary gemstone for the 2nd and 6th year of marriage.

Zodiac

Ruby is your zodiac stone. Ruby has been the world's most valued gemstone for thousands of years. Ruby was said to be the most precious of the twelve stones God created when he created all things and this "lord of gems" was placed on Aaron's neck by God's command. The bible says that wisdom is "more precious than rubies", that is to say very valuable indeed. In the ancient language of Sanskrit, Ruby is called "ratnaraj", or "king of precious stones" and "ratnanayaka", "leader of precious stones".

Talisman

Onyx is your talisman stone. Onyx was very popular with the ancient Greeks and Romans. The name comes from the Greek word onux, which means fingernail. The story goes, that one day Cupid cut the divine fingernails of Venus with an arrowhead while she was sleeping. He left the clippings scattered on the sand and the fates turned them into stone so that no part of the heavenly body would ever perish.

Mystical

Tanzanite is your mystical stone. Tanzanite helps with change. It enhances communication, awareness and psychic abilities. A stone for aspirations to higher levels.

Planet

Lapis Lazuli is your planet stone. It is said that Lapis helps one understand the mind. It helps to expand your viewpoint. It is good for connecting the heart and the mind when worn over the heart. Legend has it that Lapis Lazuli would protect the wearer from evil. Lapis was a cure for melancholy and for certain types of fever.

Lucky Charm

Danburite is your lucky charm stone.
