Birth Stones Birth Stones - Last Update : 8/27/2014 5:33:13 PM - Views : 5021

Early civilizations in both India and Babylon as far back as 3000 BC attributed rare and beautiful gemstones with magical properties. The early gem buyers sought advice from astrologers first, in hopes that they could influence the forces that were identified with the planets in their favor. There was no formal classification of gemstones, a gem was assigned each sign of the zodiac based on a color system. Color was thought to unleash the power attributed to the stone.The Indian and Babylonian systems both linked the ruling planets with their corresponding gems. Giving rise to the zodiac type system that we use today.

Josephus in his writings, proclaimed a connection between the twelve stones in the High Priest's breastplate, the twelve months of the year and the twelve signs of the zodiac. It was not until the 18th century in Poland, that there is any documentation of people actually wearing birth stones or zodiac stones. People wore or carried gem stones at first, for their therapeutic and medicinal properties. These properties were then associated with characteristics of the zodiac, making them talismans for those born in the same months.

Birth stones, as we know them today, is a list of stones that was first assembled in 1912 by the American National Association of Jewelers. This list has historical merit, but substitutions have been made, based on relative availability.
