December: Turquoise, Tanzanite & Zircon!

Happy Birthday to all of you Sagittarius & Capricorns!  Out of all of the 12 months in the year you are the only ones who get not, 1, not 2, but 3 birthstones to celebrate the anniversary of your birth all year long.  So luck you, you have get to choose between the stunning Turquoise, Tanzanite & Zircon.  The name turquoise stems from the French expression Pierre tourques or Turkish stone, originated in the thirteenth century and describes one of the oldest known gemstones.  It’s a definite perennial favorite of the American Southwest.

Tanzanite was discovered in the late 1960s in Tanzania, and found exclusively in this tiny area of the world.  This stone exhibits a rich violet-blue color for which the gemstone is treasured and is an easy budget friendly alternative to the sapphire.

The third birthstone for the month of December is the Zircon.  This gemstone has a folk meaning of granting the power to relieve pain, whet the appetite, protect travelers from disease and injury, ensure a warm welcome, and to prevent nightmares guaranteeing a deep, tranquil sleep.  Talk about an all inclusive right?

So start the year long celebration of your birth now and check out the following envy inducing pieces I’ve picked out to help you do it in style!
