Ancient legend states each different gemstone has a different property, and each gem has a different month. For example, my birth month is February therefore my birthstone is Amethyst, and it is said…

Amethyst's intense purple color and beauty has made this birthstone very popular throughout the centuries. Egyptian craftsmen over 4,500 years ago were fashioning amethyst in their jewelry. This gem was also popular since Pre-Roman times when the wine-loving Greeks believed amethyst birthstones could prevent intoxication. Medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection in battle and to help calm their fears. Amethyst has been used since ancient times for carved figurines and shapes.

For those of you interested in your birthstones, you can find out yours," target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">here.

I was wondering if anyone here owns their birthstone, and if you think it has any effect on your person? Any experiences/stories/knowledge is appreciated very much.
Thank you!

I own 2 of my birthstones, the more contemporary peridot and the roman/hebrew carnelian. I don't know if they help me, but I like to keep them around my room just in case.

Yep i have 1 that i wear on a neckless, Im not sure what is does but i do feel that it does something lol.... I guess its like having a lucky stone ect, If you believe it brings you luck then it will, i guess its the whole positive energy thing.

My birthstone is the Peridot, and I have lots of them. I have several rings (4 or 5), a bracelet, and an absolutely gorgeous silver collar with about 25 of them set into it (handmade, but worth every penny, in my opinion).

I find that whenever I get stressed out, I start rubbing them like 'worry beads', and then I relax a bit. Don't know if it's because of the stone, or just because I love jewelry, though.

Just got 2 rings and 2 on the way actually. I definately need mine.

Scorpio--October--Topaz and Citrine

Documented effects: Serenty of the mind, Protection from illness, and release/ability to focus my Magicks.

Make sure you have your stones for month and sign. They dont always match. It also reacts to where worn.

When I got my first one it was on a necklace. I could feel the energy vibrating in/from the stone when I held it in my finger tips, then mental and visual clarity when I put it on. It was lost though, I dont think I was ready to have it. It was a powerful stone because it was near pure.

Which reminds me, try to get your stone untainted. Many are heated or treated to change color .....or to pass off as other stones. My first stone was a light yellow which is the closest to the pure/clear Topaz I was gonna get. What I have now are smoky topaz and the blue topaz on order. Current effects seem to be more inner-power/spirit related instead of mental this time. I also seem to stay astral longer and visions are becoming more lengthy. Still too soon to conclude.

If I can remember, Ill bring my book with me so I can tell you other documented effects/uses for your particular stone. From what I remember, Amethyst are good for bringing people out of comas or unconsciousness. So in theory, all people who practice/experiment with Astral/OOBE's should have one. Especially those who keep running into Astral beings.

They might keep you.

My birthstone (Emerald) is too expensive! Maby in the future I'll wear some.

PS: Your link, it's not working for me.

Ohh yeah, sucks for those of you who have precious gems as your stones.

Best advice would be to find the smallest one possible.

....Or, degraded/flawed by human standards but doesnt matter by way of spiritual standards.

Lucky Day- Wednesday
Flower: Orchid
Color-Electric Blue
You Rule-Large Birds

BTW- Thats only 1/4th of your page (if that). I can fax it if you want because Im not typing all that out

SRC: The Only Astrology Book........ by Joanna Martine Woolfolk
Mine supposedly protects from enemies too. I didnt remember that one but read it again just now. Kinda helps to explain the inner power boost feeling.


Others in post:

Emerald-Taurus-Protects against infidelity and deceit, ensures loyalty, improves memory.
Sounds worth it since these things are reasons you loose money.


Theres no peridot in my book at all so either thats your month stone or they create peridot from something else. Posting your sign will help if you'd like more info on it.

I'm lucky, I'm an Aries and my birthstone is diamonds. Yup, I have some! I love them.

My birthstone is Amethyst as well. I have about one carat ring. I got it on vacation in the Cayman Islands. Its doesn't do anything for me really, it just looks great on my hand. To bad I wasn't born in April I would love to have a diamond as my birthstone. Whats so special anyways birthstones?

It's the placebo effect... but, still, mine are emeralds and that's my favorite stone. I feel SO good when someone gives me emeralds!

(or rubies, or sapphires (I'm not much for diamonds, though) or peridot or topaz or tourmaline...)
