Magical Mermaid: YOUR December birthstone is the coveted Ruby, and it is a stone fit for royalty!

It derives its name from the Latin ‘rubinus’, meaning red and that stunning crimson colour is the reason it is highly associated with love and fiery passion.

Rubies can be traced back to as early as 2500 BC, and have been called THE MOST precious of the 12 stones created by God, as well as being one of the most sought-after gems of European royalty!

Many medieval Europeans also wore Rubies to guarantee health, wealth, wisdom and success in love, and the Ancient Burmese prized the Ruby as the stone of soldiers as they believed it bestowed invulnerability.

Rubies are powerful tools for stimulating the Root Chakra and are said to energise and activate your physical, mental and emotional body!!! This flaming red stunner is also believed to be good for inviting romantic love to manifest in your life, as well as to heighten self-love.

Encourages Compassion • Calming • Inspires Joy

Warrior Queen, YOUR birthstone — the mesmerising Tanzanite, is a gem said to integrate the energies of the mind and heart, and is thought to make it easier to speak the heart’s truth (and we all need a lot of that)!!!

Its name is derived after its country of origin — Tanzania — and your beautiful birthstone has been called the most important gemstone discovery in over 2000 years!!!

It is strongly attached to the Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras, and is thought to encourage compassion, calming of the mind, inspire joy, aid in knowing and expressing the wisdom of the heart, help unifying the higher mind with intuition and communication, as well as to open a cascade of thoughts and insights.

Believers in the power of this magical stone use it with confidence for an abundance of healing processes.

Mystical Being — YOUR incredibly special stone is also considered to be one of the most coveted and popular gemstones in the world!!!

Healing • Repels Negativity • Protection • Communication

Magical Queen, YOUR birthstone — the stunning Turquoise — is a gem rich with history, loved throughout time and is well known as a healing stone to aid in fast recovery, whether it’s physical or emotional. It is thought to dispel all the negativity that aggravates your condition and to protect you from harmful energy.

The earliest evidence of Turquoise gems come from Ancient Egyptian tombs filled with Turquoise jewellery dating all the way back to 3000 BC!!!

The oldest Turquoise mines are situated in the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt, with one being incredibly near to an Ancient Temple dedicated to Hathor (the Greek Goddess of love and joy). Therefore it should come as no surprise Ancient Egyptians referred to your birthstone as ‘mefkat’ … meaning joy and delight.

Ancient Persians also adored this gorgeous gem and often engraved it with Arabic script. Turquoise covered Persian palace domes and is believed to have inspired the use of Turquoise in the Taj Mahal too.

Turquoise was also said to provide protection, and Ancient Persians referred to this stone as ‘pirouzeh’, meaning victory. However, the name we use today comes from the 1200s when Turkish traders introduced this blue-ish green stone to Europe, and became known as ‘pierre tourques’, meaning the Turkish stone.

This powerful stone is strongly attached to the Throat Chakra, and is said to physically increase the life force in the body and support blood oxygenation, emotionally to encourage self-forgiveness and the release of useless regrets, and spiritually to inspire you to act out of truth, compassion and forgiveness.

Truthful Communication • Creativity • Inner Vision • Emotional Healing

December Mermaid, how incredible is it to call the striking Lapis Lazuli YOUR birthstone?! It’s believed that wearing Lapis Lazuli as jewellery when working on ANYTHING creative will awaken your passion and inspire creative ideas to continuously flow. The Ancient Sumerians even believed that the spirits of the gods lived within this gem!

Its name is derived from two-parts and two different cultures — Lapis comes from the Latin word meaning stone and Lazuli comes from the Persian word ‘lazhuward’, meaning blue.

This stunning stone is associated with courage, wisdom, intellect and truth, and Lapis Lazuli has even been known to ward off evil.

It is strongly attached to the Third Eye and Throat Chakras, and thought to physically aid in seeing the karmic or psychological roots of illness, emotionally help recognise and dissolve emotional pathologies, and spiritually enhance telepathy, past-life recall, visionary awareness and to help deepen meditation.

It is a stone said to soothe the emotional body, release stress and tension, cool hot tempers and guide excess passion into peace.

YOUR birthstone — Lapis Lazuli — is truly a gift from the divine.
