Below is a list of birth months and their matching birth stones.
Along with the birth stone is a bit of lore regarding the properties
that have been attributed to these stones over time.

I use genuine Garnets when possible for birth stone jewelry.

by a Greek god. Its powers include the promotion of dreams. It is a favorite gemstone,
said to protect one from thieves and the influence of wine.

with the power to keep one safe at sea and through stormy waters.
