Birthstones by month. Part 1.

There are many systems of birthstones, coming from multiple cultures and histories, and each has their own origin story. A great many of the birthstone beliefs used in North America and Europe come from Biblical sources and the medieval church.This system of belief eventually evolved into the current system of metaphysical or healing associations with particular gemstones.In the 900s, the use of gemstones to treat a range of spiritual ailments was emerging in Tibet. Meanwhile, Ayurvedic medicine was taking off in India, with different gemstones associated with different months and different personality types.

Not all birthstone lists run on a per-month basis. Some are yearly--like the Chinese Zodiac--while others are based on the day, or even the hour, of birth.
