THE DECEMBER BIRTHSTONEZIRCON - Zircon is an ancient gemstone that has been treasured since antiquity. The word “zircon” is derived from the Persian word “zargun”, meaning “gold-colored”. It was originally thought to have magical powers, but over the centuries it has come to be prized as a beautiful and rare gemstone.

TANZANITE - Tanzanite was discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, which is where it gets its name. It is a relatively recent addition to the world of gemstones, but its intense blue-violet color and unique crystal structure make it a popular choice among gem collectors.

TURQUOISE - Turquoise is one of the oldest known gemstones and has a long history. Its use dates back to ancient Egypt, where it was believed to protect against evil forces and provide good luck. In many cultures, turquoise is associated with wealth and success, as well as health and healing.


Zircon is known as the stone of virtue, promoting spiritual growth and helping one make the most of their life. It is said to bring spiritual enlightenment and help with problem-solving skills. It can also be used to help alleviate stress and anxiety.

Tanzanite is believed to have strong healing powers, helping to clear emotional blockages and bringing peace and balance. It has a calming effect on the mind and body and can help with the resolution of disputes. Tanzanite is also thought to reduce fear and open up channels of communication.

Turquoise is known as a stone of protection, shielding its wearer from negative energies. It can be used to bring calmness and clarity of thought. It is believed to bring luck, good fortune, and prosperity to those who wear it. Turquoise can also help improve self-confidence and increase creative expression.
