But this article doesn’t discuss gemstone properties in the strictest sense. Rather, we’re going to take a look at gemstone meanings from a personality viewpoint.
You share an energetic resonance with your birthstone. Your birthstones are powerful talismans. You and your astrological gemstones are connecting in a sparkly dance of life. When we partner up with the matter and energy that aligns with our birthdays, we become part of the endless rhythm of life – and better understand who we are in the process.
The following observations about your birth gemstones deal with your personality.
Bear in mind, these aren’t the only gemstones aligned with your date of birth. All of us inherit multiple crystals, stones and gems at our birth – each one is an expression of your unique beauty.
If your birthstones could speak on the day you were born, these are thoughts on what they might say to you:
