 When it comes to the question: “What’s my birthstone?”, the answer relies on your birthday and specifically your birth month. We’ll go through the traditional birthstones and the modern birthstone list, so you’ll know what your birthstone by month is.
Based on your birth month, you’ll have a few options of crystals with significant healing powers to choose from. Though there are twelve months, there are more than twelve stones to choose from. There are lists of birthstones from the American Gem Trade Association, the National Association of Jewelers, and the Jewelry Industry Council, to name only a few.

Some of the modern birthstones we’ll discuss are extremely rare, like Blue Sapphires. You might like such a highly valuable gemstone. Other birthstones are more affordable options for everyday wear.

Birthstone jewelry by zodiac sign

You can also choose the birthstones based on your zodiac sign. It can be your Sun sign, Moon sign, or Ascendant sign. You can look through the zodiac sets and choose the birthstones that best resonate with you. Since each zodiac sign covers two months, for each sign you have plenty of birthstones to choose from.
The sign of Aries covers the months of March and April. Besides the Diamond and Aquamarine April and March birthstone jewelry combo, there are other crystals that work very well for Aries. For instance the ones that are part of the Aries Bracelet and Crystals Set, which includes Phantom Quartz, Carnelian, Yellow Jasper, Green Aventurine, Howlite, and Clear Quartz.
Taurus covers the months of April and May, which means the Diamond and Emerald birthstones mix is very powerful for natives of this zodiac sign. The Taurus Bracelet and Crystals Set reunites powerful crystals like Rose Quartz, Tiger’s Eye, Chalcedony, Serpentine Jade, Black Tourmaline, and Clear Quartz.

Gemini relates to the months of May and June. That means Geminians should wear the Emerald, Pearls, Alexandrite, and Moonstone birthstone jewelry. But the Gemini Bracelet and Crystals Set features Obsidian, Tiger’s Eye, Chalcedony, Leopard Jasper, and Clear Quartz.

What Color Is My Birthstone Jewelry?

Gemologic color theory is an important part of choosing birthstones. When you consider what your birthstone color is, there are a few pointers you can go on. One of them is your zodiac sign and the elemental associations with that.

Zodiac sign birthstone color associations

  • Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn: green, brown, black, and dark reds

  • Aries, Leo, Sagittarius: red, yellow, orange

  • Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces: blue, pink, purple, indigo

  • Gemini, Libra, Aquarius: transparent, white, gray

  • Spring: green, pink, light colors
  • Summer: orange, red, blue, intense colors
  • Fall/Autumn: brown, darker colors
  • Winter: white, black, gray


    Winter is somewhat obvious in terms of color associations. Snow brings to mind the clear and white birthstone color. You can also go with black or gray gemstones, though. That’s because wintertime marks the end of the yearly cycle in preparation for the new beginning of spring. It’s the season of resting, so it goes well with crystals for healing and cleansing.

    Chakra birthstone color associations

    • Crown chakra: white, transparent

    • Third eye chakra: purple

    • Throat chakra: blue

    • Heart Chakra: green, pink

    • Solar plexus chakra: yellow

    • Sacral chakra: orange

    • Root chakra: red, brown, black

    These gemstones support wisdom, balance, and spiritual growth. Find out more about crown chakra crystals.
