Birthstones by Zodiac

Birthstones are the gemstones that relate to an individual’s birth month. The origin of these birthstones dates back to biblical times when Aaron the traditional founder of the Israelite priesthood adorned the twelve gemstones on his breastplate. These twelve stones represented the twelve tribes of Israel. It was during the first and fifth centuries that birthstones were linked to zodiacs. 

People believed in their powers and started wearing them during the corresponding astrological period. These birthstones by the zodiac were worn as talismans and therapeutic benefits. With time the concept took another turn where birthstones were associated with the months of the year.  Thus, there are two birthstone charts, one that goes by months and the other by zodiacs. 

There are twelve stones for each zodiac sign. Zodiac gemstone is associated with the placement of planets and is thus called an astral stone. With this blog lets know what these birthstones by zodiac are:
