august birthstone peridot

The August birthstone is the peridot. Attractive, brave and fearless their independent qualities and spirit means they are born leaders.Thirsty for praise and and easily angered they can be jealous and jump to conclusions. In work they love to take responsibility and are often talented in the arts and music.  This romantic dreamer loves nothing more than hanging out with family and friends , falling in love easily and often having their hearts broken due to being too trusting and hasty.

The Peridot symbolises strength. It is sometimes called the “evening emerald” for its pale green color. In ancient times it was  believed that the green peridot crystals found in volcanic ashes were the tears of the volcano goddess, Pele. When set in gold, this gem is said to protect the wearer from nightmares.  Peridot is always a yellow green and the darker a the more valuable it is. This darkness is dictated by the amount of iron present. Ancient records indicate that the Egyptians mined peridot on an island in the Red Sea, but the location was lost until it was relocated in 1900.

One of the distinctive characteristics of peridot is that their color is the same in both natural and artificial light. This ability to give off the same green glow at night led to their association with great beauty, especially in Egyptian culture. The gift of a peridot can tell the recipient that they light up a room !

Associated with the sun, Peridot has been prized since the earliest civilizations for its protective powers to drive away the forces of darkness. Set in gold and worn around the neck or bound to the left arm, it was used as a charm against sorcery and magic, evil spirits, night terrors, and madness. It cured cowardice, calmed anger, and sharpened intelligence.It eases  emotional burdens, guilt and obsessions helps the wearer to overcoming fear, depression as well as releasing jealousies, resentment and spite in order to move forward. Peridot promotes responsibility and forgiveness, instilling confidence in one’s own abilities and reestablishing a sense of self-worth.It adds intelligence to our romantic situations, giving us a bit of common sense in affairs of the heart, and protecting us from unnecessary heartache. The peridot is a wonderful stone to heal ‘ healers’ helping all those who care for others by clearing their auras and releasing toxins.

The October birthstone is the Opal

Published

on

The October birthstone is the Opal. The October birthday  loves to chat and will respond wholeheartedly to those they believe loves them and values friends very highly. They are hurt easily and if betrayed will try to forgive quickly which is a testament to their inner beauty. Opinionated they will not care what others think once they have made a decision . They day dream and imagine being in the great outdoors and travelling to beautiful places. 

The opal symbolises faithfulness and confidence. The word comes from the Latin opalus, meaning “precious jewel.” Necklaces with opals set in them were worn to repel evil and to protect eyesight.

Opalscan  exhibit a wide variety of colors.it diffracts light and can display all the colors of the rainbow simultaneously. For this reason, it has been considered great luck throughout history as it was thought to possess all the value of each gemstone in the opals color spectrum. Unfortunately after  the publication of Sir Walter Scott’s novel Anne of Geierstein, people in the 1800s began to associate opals with bad luck and even death.

October birthstone opal

Known as the eyestone the opal inspires love and hope, innocence and purity, luck and happiness.Bringing energy to the system, soothing and clearing the emotional body, and boosting the will to live and the joy of life,  It kindles optimism, enthusiasm and creativity, and allows for the release of inhibitions inspiring love and passion.

 Opals are protective. They are stones of happy dreams, particularly soothing for children and those who have always slept badly or had recurring nightmares with no apparent reason,  helping   any issues a child may have with an invisible or imaginary friend, and is especially helpful before sleep if the child wishes the friend to go away at bedtime. It enhances foresight, empathy and confidence and helps the wearer influence people to his point of view.

The September birthstone : Sapphire and lapis lazuli

Published

on

Very choosy, especially in relationships the September birthday tends to bottle up feelings.rarely showing deep emotions and bottling up feelings. However they are calm, cool, systematic and in control. Always systematic, able to be very kind and sympathetic, they are loyal but not always honest. They love to seek out information and are careful, cautious and organised, priding themselves on their abilities and quick to point out  other people’s mistakes.Clever and knowledgeable about many subjects they communicate well.

The sapphire was once thought to guard against evil and poisoning and there are stories that say people  believed that a venomous snake would die if placed in a vessel made of sapphire. Traditionally a favorite stone of priests and kings, the sapphire symbolizes purity and wisdom. 

There is evidence that lapis lazuli has been mined since 4,000 BC in Afghanistan and was a very important commodity with other developing civilizations like the Egyptians. Lapis is a soft gemstone which made it easier to work with by hand. Unlike many gems, the color blue that is characteristic of lapis lazuli is pretty uniform across most specimens. The chief difference in appearance is the concentration and arrangement of pyrite crystals that dot the exterior of lapis specimens.

In Europe, lapis was ground up and used as a paint pigment called ultramarine. Ultramarine was unique among the other blue pigments available because it did not lose its color when exposed to direct sunlight. This made it very expensive. This true blue stone has since become associated with encouraging honesty in your relationships and making better decisions.

The Sapphire is considered a very powerful amulet – it protects against envy ,strengthens memory, awakens a thirst for knowledge and arouses inspiration.It is known as the “talisman of wisdom”. Ancient Teutons believed that it helps to achieve victory, but only to those whose thoughts are pure. Sapphire protects against evil eye and curses. 

At one time It was given to young nuns. It cools passion and clears  the soul for prayer. If you wear a sapphire  it will help you become determined and courageous. Sapphire attracts friends and repels enemies.

It was once believed that  to make a man fall in love with her a woman should put a Sapphire in his wine.

 A Sapphire on the left hand strengthens health and brings relief from asthma, heart conditions and neuralgia.

The July Birthstone is the Ruby – characteristics and jewellery

Published

on

The July Birthstone is the ruby. Whilst the July birthday person is fun to be with they can be secretive making them difficult to fathom and to be understood they take great pride in themselves and their work trying hard to  build a reputation as friendly and approachable but their tendency to be emotional , temperamental and unpredictable means they can become moody and easily hurt.The Ruby birthstone person loves to be loved and if hurt they will brood about the past and the old loves and friendships .

Characteristics of the July Birthstone

Rubies are a special form of the mineral corundum that causes the characteristic dark red colour. This red color comes from the chromium present in the ruby. Rubies with an insufficient amount of chromium are labelled ‘pink sapphires’ .The deep dark red gemstone  has fascinated people throughout history with the most valuable rubies in the world called pigeon-blood, after the dark-red with blue undertones that makes them look eerily like blood. This association with blood links the stone with vitality and physical strength. Since we toast each other’s health,it makes sense to set rubies into drnking vessels since ancient times. 

july birthstone

Those who risk their lives have a special connection with this gem, because the stone is said to stand for invulnerability. In ancient times soldiers would place the stone on the left side of their body, but there were other soldiers who inserted the stone into their flesh because they thought that then the stone would always accompany them and keep them safe. The ruby ​​protected them from spears, guns and swords. Today those who use it do not protect themselves from swords but protect themselves from negativity and negative energies.

Known as the queen of gems  the ruby is one of the most beautiful and the most powerful of all gems The ruby ​​fills its bearer with courage.

It is said it ​​makes a good person even kinder,  turns someone bad into a true villain, helps noble and brave people win victories, and gives ordinary people happiness and love. It has immense power and must only be used positively and with care.
