Those with December birthdays are truly lucky. Not only are they born in the most beautiful month of the year, but they also have three gorgeous birthstones to choose from! Turquoise, Tanzanite, and zircon are the precious stones that December babies get to call their own. Although they all share the same colour, they all have unique properties. Let’s find out more!
Turquoise is one of the oldest and most well-known precious stones globally. It’s famous for its bright blue-green hue and marble-like markings. It has been worn and adored for millennia: from ancient Egyptian pharaohs to Chinese artisans to Native tribes in the American Southwest. Turquoise is said to contain healing powers. It brings the wearer wealth, good health, good fortune and deters evil. It’s also a stone that looks amazing on various media. Turquoise can be made into jewelry or adorned handbags, or even clothing.
Those that prefer deeper shades of blue will love Tanzanite. Its rich, velvety shade is reminiscent of cobalt, electric blue, or violet. Tanzanite is a relatively new precious stone – it was discovered in the 1960s at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Since its discovery, it has become one of the most popular gemstones globally due to its beautiful colour, clarity, and ability for significant cuts. Being a new stone, Tanzanite doesn’t have mythical properties as its counterparts. However, it is also the stone for the 24th wedding anniversary.
The December birthstones offer the perfect selection of colours for December babies everywhere. A piece (or two) of birthstone jewelry makes for an excellent birthday or Christmas gift. Whether it’s bright turquoise, dazzling Tanzanite, the December woman in your life will have a beautiful piece of jewelry filled with meaning.
