Discover Turquoise - The December Birthstone

 


Ancient turquoise has a long and influential history. Turquoise was one of the first-ever gemstones to be mined and turned into jewelry. It’s valued for its intense, beautiful blue color. In modern times turquoise is a widely available stone. However, it is rare in its pure, natural form.


December Birthstone


Turquoise is the birthstone of December, perfect for Saggitarians or Capricorns. Many people choose to pick symbolic jewelry based on their birthday, by birthstone or star sign. December is somewhat unique in that it has three birthstones; Zircon, Tanzanite, and Turquoise. Each of these gemstones is a striking blue tone. However, the most popular and well-known birthstone for December is turquoise. The popularity of turquoise as a birthday gift may relate to its price compared to the other three stones. Of the three December birthstones, tanzanite is usually the most expensive, followed by zircon.


The Meaning Of Turquoise


Turquoise is a highly symbolic and meaningful stone. The beautiful blue color of turquoise is associated with a refreshing, calming feeling. It is feminine and sophisticated. This stone carries vital energy, bringing wisdom, serenity, creativity, and emotional balance to the wearer. Many people believe this stone also brings good luck, spiritual grounding, friendship, love, joy, tranquility, patience, intuition, and loyalty.


The History Of Turquoise


Turquoise was one of the first gemstones ever mined, dating back to around 6000 BC. First discovered in ancient Egypt and China, turquoise is now the national gemstone of modern-day Tibet. Turquoise also has a strong association with native American tribes and is often seen in traditional native American jewelry. Tribes, including the Apaches, used it as a ceremonial gem and a medium of exchange. It is widely believed to be a symbol of good luck and spiritual grounding.
