Most people know that there is a stone associated with the month that they were born, but did you know that the birthstone is said to have a very ancient and symbolic beginning?
Ancient wisdom says that the 12 zodiacal signs, the 12 tribes of Israel, and the 12 stones on the breastplate of judgment are all connected!
The breastplate of judgment, or Hoshen-Ha-Mishpat, was an oracle worn only by the very spiritually evolved. Each stone of the breastplate was engraved with the name of all those sons of Jacob, deemed to be the leader of a tribe of Israel, each stone placed in the order that they were born.

How To Use This List
Because of this birthstone month vs. zodiac sign confusion, we offer birthstones based on ancient texts and the signs of astrology, as well as the current system of birthstone months.
There are still other birthstone lists that show other possibilities, when it comes to which birthstone goes with what month or sign. I make no claim that my birthstone lists are correct, only correct according to certain texts.
Below, you can look over the list of birthstones by zodiac sign. Below that, you will find a list of birthstones by month. This way, you can decide for yourself, which stones resonate to you, personally.
