Zodiac Birth Stones And Wedding Anniversary Gemstones

YOUR ZODIAC GEMSTONES

 Our birth month and birthstone have gone hand in hand for generations, but have you ever thought about your Zodiac stone?

Zodiac Gem Stones  were most likely named by the Mesopotamians who were some of the earliest astronomers. It is said that the Mesopotamians associated each gemstone with particular human traits and then assigned them to the different months of the zodiac.

There is a gemstone for every year of married life. These are  referred to as an anniversary gem stones. Certain anniversaries like the 10th, 25th and 50th are considered to be significant milestones.

A Birthstone sometimes also called a  birthday stone is traditionally associated with various qualities that symbolize the month of birth in the Gregorian Calendar. A Birthstone makes an ideal birthday gift.
