Birthstones are gemstones that are linked to a birth month with each having a special meaning attached to historical significance. Birthstones have been popular from ancient times when people attached value and importance to its powers on health, luck, and prosperity and life longevity. Primarily, every month of the year is linked to a gemstone be it Cancer, Virgo, or Gemini. However, there are particular months with more than one birthstone. Unlike in the ancient times, the birthstones attached to certain months in recent times are different.

In the past, the colors of birthstones signified health, wealth, luck and prosperity but over recent times, our list of modern gemstone distinguishes a Ruby and Garnet in a different way.
