Birthstone Chart and Colors

Each month of our calendar year has gemstones that are associated with that month. The Birthstone chart listed below gives the modern, mystical, and other birthstones to help you choose the stone that best suits you.

The gemstones listed are considered lucky for their particular months, and it is believed that each stones healing powers are heightened during their months.

The official chart of Modern Birthstones comes from the American National Association of Jewelers, Jewelers of America. These gemstones were officially adopted in 1912. In the US, this is the accepted list. The family tree of life pendant to the right has all twelve modern birthstones displayed.

The Mystical Birthstone Chart was obtained from a Tibetan book said to be over a thousand years old. It is said that these stones help one overcome the obstacles of their birth month. The Mystical gemstones are sometimes combined with the modern and traditional charts.

Birthstone Charts vary from jeweler to jeweler, but in gereral the gemstone colors will be very close from list to list.

Also listed below are the Swarovski Crystal Birthstone Colors for each month. This will help in choosing the color crystals or glass pearls for your personalized jewelry. If you would like more information on color meaning go to my COLOR MEANINGS page.
