Astrological zodiac is a very ancient system that links the date of birth of the person with the Cosmos. And every sign of the zodiac has its own characteristics, including matching birthstones. From ancient times to present days astrologers say that every gemstone defines the particular sign of the zodiac.

But value of the birthstones for the zodiac signs formed gradually: more than one millennium has passed before astrologers linked the properties of the gemstones with specific constellations.

Every gemstone has its own energy field that affects the human energy field. A properly chosen stone accumulates energy of the person to help him or her in time of need. Therefore, lots of people wear jewelry with stone inserts that match their date of birth.

Wearing a birthstone as your ring or earring setting  is the perfect option.
