Birth Stone for April

Birthstones are colourful gems that are assigned to each of the twelve months. These stones are associated with unique meanings and are a great way to get in touch with the best qualities surrounding each month of birth.

 The idea of birthstones dates back to ancient times. The first lists of birthstones included only one for each month, but modern-day jewellers have added more stones to the list so there are plenty of gorgeous options to choose from.

April has two birthstones: diamond and crystals.

April Birthstone

April Birthstone - Diamond

Diamonds are famous for their elegance and beauty. These are highly prized gems since they are some of the rarest in the world!

This stone is known to mean everlasting love, courage, and beauty. In the past, people wore diamonds to protect against the plague because of their supposed healing powers.

The symbolism associated with diamonds varies by 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.

Crystal - Birthstone for April

The other birthstone of April is the rock crystal. Rock crystals are clear quartz stones and are known for their healing abilities.

These crystals are transparent and colourless. The name “crystal” comes from the Greek krustallos, meaning “ice.”

Crystals are typically associated with purity and positivity. Wearing crystals or bringing them into your home attracts personal growth and inner strength. Some say that sleeping with a rock crystal under your pillow keeps bad dreams away!
