Birth Stone for December

Birthstones are gemstones that accompany each month of the year. Every stone portrays its own special meaning which appeared in ancient times.

Traditional birthstone lists were inspired by the 12 gemstones on the breastplate of the High Priest of the Israelites in the Bible. A modern chart was created by American National Association of Jewellers in 1912.

December is a month with three different birthstones. This month’s traditional birthstone is turquoise, and tanzanite or zircon on the modern chart.

December Birthstone

December Birthstone - Turquoise

The most traditional December birthstone is turquoise. This stone comes in a range of greenish-blue shades and was originally discovered in ancient Persia. That makes this one of the oldest gemstones that have been admired for many centuries.

In ancient times, turquoise was said to provide health and fortune to wearers. It is also considered a national treasure in certain countries and believed to protect wearers from evil. Today, turquoise may bring peace and luck to its wearers.

If turquoise is your birthstone, it is said that you will have prosperity and rebirth in your future! That doesn’t sound too bad, huh? This beautiful stone also possesses healing properties and can help with breathing difficulties or infections and improve vision.

Whether you are looking for a birthday present for someone born in December or a gift for a special occasion, a turquoise gemstone necklace can make for a special treat.

December Birthstone - Tanzanite

Tanzanite is one of the newer birthstones associated with December. This stone comes in deep hues such as rich blue or violet. It is admired for its trichroic pleochroism — a fancy way of labelling the stone’s ability to show three different colours depending on the angle viewed. It is also said to break down negativity.

December Birthstone - Zircon

Another gemstone in the modern birthstone chart is zircon. While this stone comes in various colours, the blue zircon variety tends to be the stone most associated with December.

This stone was said to help ward off evil spirits and encourage deep sleep. It was a prized gem in the Victorian era. Today, the gem is typically associated with confidence and wisdom.
