Birth and Astral stones

There are particular Crystals and Gemstones that have increased energies at certain times of the year. The month of a Crystal or Gemstone’s heightened energy level determines your stone.

Ancient astrologers believed that the influence of your astrology sign over your fortune in life is strengthened by wearing, holding or carrying the stone associated with the constellation under which you were born.  This idea is based on the harmony that exists between all things.  Your astral stone is more than a symbol of your astrology sign; according to this ancient school of thought, it actually receives the vibrations of the constellation and can strengthen the planetary or zodiacal influence.

It is believed that the connection between the stones and the months developed from the 12 stones revealed in the Bible. But there have been varied beliefs, opinions and traditions over time that connects a certain Crystal or Gemstone with a month of the year. Because of this, you will see that some stones and crystals come under several months.
