What Does Your Birthstone Reveal About Your Personality?

Written by Chandrama Deshmukh

Whether we think of the lush sparkle of diamonds, the decadent glitter of red rubies or the glamorous glint of emeralds, precious stones have us all secretly (or maybe not so secretly) echoing the infamous Gollum’s words, “My precious!”

 And the poor little Hobbit may have actually been on to something because different precious stones have a close association with the different months of the Gregorian calendar as well as the corresponding astrological sun signs of those months. This bestows upon them their celebrated label of ‘birthstones.’

Consider yourself a skeptic? Well, be prepared to be amazed! Your birthstone can disclose remarkable attributes of your personality, which may pleasantly surprise you.

Let’s find out about your very own birthstone that embodies your personality and the pivotal healing powers it is associated with.
