Birth Stone for April
Birthstones are colourful gemstones that are assigned to different months. These stones have unique meanings and significance to them, and are a way to connect with your birth month.
These stones are said to date back to the ancient times. While in the past, each month is associated with a gemstone, jewellers today continue to add options to the modern birthstone chart.
April has two birthstones, diamond and crystals.
April Birthstone - Diamond
Diamonds are widely known for its beauty and clarity. They are also highly prized, as they are one of the rarest gemstones in the world.
This stone is typically known for everlasting love, courage and beauty. In the past, diamonds were believed to have healing powers, protecting those who wear it against the plague.
Diamonds also have various symbolisms associated with it, depending on the country. In Sanskrit, diamonds are called vajra, which translates to lightning; in Hindu mythology, diamonds were also the weapon of Indra, the king of gods.

The other birthstone of April is the rock crystal. Rock crystals are clear quartz stones and are known for its healing abilities in various countries.
These crystals are transparent and colourless, with its name deriving from a Greek term, krustallos, to mean ‘ice’.
Crystals are typically associated with purity and positivity, bringing personal growth and inner strength to those who use it. It is also believed that sleeping with a rock crystal under your pillow will help rid one of their bad dreams.
