The fascination with birthstone seems endless, especially because there are so many ways you can define one's birthstone! They also make excellent gifts when you are lost for ideas, so let's explore the wonder of birthstones.

You probably already know that can find someone's birthstone by looking at his or her month of birth or astrological sign. This is the most popular, or widely known way of finding a birthstone.

Did you know, though, that you can also find the birthstone by the day of the week, as well as the year of birth?

Even if you just look at the month, you will see that there is more than one birthstone assigned, because in the world of crystals and stones energies are shared freely, so you can find many similarities in color and overall energy signature between different gemstones. 

How can you decide on just one birthstone when you can actually have five or seven of them? This will happen if you also look at the day of the week as well as the year. Well, the best way to go is to first understand the qualities of your birthstones and see what they all have in common.

Next, take a trip to a good jewelry store or a crystal shop and experience their energy for yourself. Pay attention to the look and feel of your birthstones. Is there a specific gemstone that feels really attractive to you? Hopefully, the one you really like also fits in your budget!

Understand that there are really no strict rules when it comes to choosing yours or someone else's birthstone because we are very complex beings defined by many more factors than just our birth info.

So, approach the information below with a playful, open attitude and allow it to be the beginning of a fascinating exploration of the world of crystals and stones!

Many of them are inexpensive, and a pleasure to have around; they also create really good feng shui in your home or office.
