DESIRE GEMS’ ZODIAC STONE GUIDE

Zodiac stones are also referred to as astral stones. The term ‘astral’ was derived from astrology and was used as a way of telling time. These time periods were divided into 12 sections and were assigned Zodiac names such as Taurus, Scorpio, Sagittarius, etc. They refer to the constellations in the universe. Each zodiac sign has a gemstone associated with it. It was believed that the wearer can tap into his or her hidden strengths by choosing a zodiac gemstone.

Birthstones are connected to calendar months, i.e. January, March, October, etc. Sometimes referred to as a modern stone, it was introduced in 1912 by Jewelers of America.

Whether you choose to wear a zodiac stone or birthstone, depends on you and your beliefs. However experts agree, the best way to choose a stone is to find one that you’re naturally drawn to.
