BirthStones


There are two different types of birth stones.
Birthstones-determined by the month you were born
Astrological Birthstones-determined by your zodiac sign
Many people don't relize that there is sometimes a difference between their birthstone and their zodiac stone. Your birthstone is based on the month that you were born in, while your zodiac stone (a.k.a. astrological birthstone) is based on the exact date your birthday falls on.

For example, if your birthday was on March third, you could choose between your zodiac stone(Diamond), or the March stone(Aquamarine).

Here is a list of the Zodiac stones and the dates they fall under.
