December birthstone color: BLUE

No doubt about it – when it comes to December – birthstones are coming up blue.

That’s because December has not one, not two , not three but FOUR blue birthstones.

Birthstones are special jewels for each month, and those people lucky enough to be born in December can celebrate in so many beautiful ways.

The most well-known December birthstone is turquoise. Although turquoise can be green, or even white it is best known as a blue gem. Turquoise has been known since antiquity, from the Navajo to the Egyptians. This smokey gem is known for the veins of the mother stone that it is found in.

The second birthstone of December is zircon – not zirconium of course. Blue zircon is known for it’s lustre and fire, and shine.

The third blue birthstone for December, Tanzania, the very last one to be discovered . The Masai people of Tanzania discovered this jewel in this century. I love the stories that circle this gem: particularly the legend where tanzanite was believed to be formed when lightning set the land on fire. It was believed that the heat formed the beautiful crystals that became tanzanite.

Topaz is usually believed to be the November birthstone and it is in the traditional system set out by the Jeweler’s of America. Topaz comes in many colors. However, since I became interested in birthstones I have learned of many systems that revere blue topaz as a December birthstone. Blue topaz symbolizes bravery, sincerity, wisdom – and it helps you become more creative. As well as being so pretty!

So I think blue topaz is the fourth birthstone.

So many lovely blue choices for the December baby!
