Most people I know with December birthdays often resent the proximity of their special day to other holidays. They feel the celebration gets swept up into the other gatherings and plans. Maybe to make up for it, I don't know, you lucky December birthdays get three birthstone options!
Turquoise with its beautiful robin’s egg blue is a gemstone is attributed with healing powers. Good news in flu season. But better yet it promotes the wearer’s status and wealth. Last month of the year is a perfect time for a pay raise. And it is known to protect from evil and bring good luck. Wow, the trifecta.
Turquoise is opaque in light to dark blue or blue-green colors and may contain narrow veins of other materials known as the matrix. These veins are black or brown and are sometimes in the form of an intricate pattern, called a spider web.
If turquoise doesn't catch your fancy, take a look at Tanzanite. It is a gemstone found in one place on Earth: the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This gem is an exotic velvety blue with a rich overtone of purple, a color unlike any other.
Tanzanite may be your ticket to spiritual exploration and psychic power. It is particularly helpful in uniting the mind and heart, teaching one to live from a compassionate heart with an illumined mind and aid in meditation.
If you are feeling cover in the spiritual arena then maybe topaz is for you. Topaz is a symbol of love and affection and has been said to be an aid to one's sweetness and disposition. Topaz comes in a range of colors but taking its cue from the other gemstones of December is comes in a beautiful array of blues.
Happy Birthday December Babes! Make your birthday special this year!
