If you were born in December, you are lucky to have a choice of three gems on the modern birthstone list; blue topaz, turquoise and tanzanite. Blue is the color for December, and the traditional birthstone list also includes zircon and lapis lazuli. December has a range of blues as birthstones. Blue topaz is one of the most popular blue gemstones, with sky blue, Swiss blue and London blue to choose from. Large blue topaz gems are often affordable and cut in interesting shapes and styles. Turquoise has been used since ancient times. It is an opaque gemstone that is usually cut as cabochons, beads, carved or tumbled. Tanzanite is a relatively recent discovery that is found in Tanzania. It can be blue, violet or violet blue in various shades. Tanzanite is incredibly beautiful and quite rare. Blue zircon has great brilliance and is admired for its wonderful sparkle and teal-like blues.

It's pretty great having a whole lot of different gemstones to choose from. When doing crafts and jewelry making, it's great to have all kinds of options, and it's amazing how much cheaper it is to just purchase un-set gemstones and make the setting yourself, as opposed to buying fully-made jewelry already. It's also extra special since you made it yourself.
