Birthstones include a variety of different color gem stones associated with your birth month. However, different color gems can lead to two of the same color for two different months. Since people are sometimes not satisfied with their original color birthstone they might choose the sometimes less rare and less precious alternative color. This can't happen with all birthstones though. For instance, the December birthstone is a common example where a person might get blue instead of the more natural turquoise.
Here is a list of different birthstone colors for each month:
- Light Amethyst
- Peridot Crystal
Gem stones have a huge history and were used in a variety of things. They're not only used in jewelry but also armor, and even industrial equipment. Such gems are required for things like cutting, sanding, grinding, and sawing. This is because of their incredible strength, durability, and abrasiveness.
Gems have been used by humans for multiple purposes for thousands of years, and will be used continually for thousands of years in the future.
