Celtic Birthstones

Celtic Birthstones

The Celts were a series of tribes that originally lived in central Europe and spread throughout western Europe including Great Britain around 2500 years ago. Their legacy is most noticeable in Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Cornwall where the Celtic languages are still spoken today as well as cultural links that have been spread by worldwide immigration especially in America, Australia and New Zealand.

Ancient Celtic tribes included Gauls, Britons, Galatians and Irish who were collectively referred to as Galli by the rival Roman Empire which means 'barbarians'. But Celts, despite appearances in some modern books and movies, were far from uncultured and uncivilized and even the Romans acknowledged their advanced expertise in astrology.

Druids were the high ranking religious leaders among the Celts and they developed a calendar for the year based on 13 lunar months which could predict accurately the dates for spring planting and autumn harvesting as well as important dates for sacred rituals.

Celts felt that all natural things such as plants, animals and rocks have spirits and can influence human activity. Each of the 13 lunar months was named after a powerful local tree and the season in which you are born can affect your personality.
As well as animals, colors and symbols, each month was linked to a gemstone or crystal and, like other birthstones, has a special connection to anyone born within those dates.

This has given us a further opportunity to find a birthstone that is just perfect for you or your loved ones. Birthstones according to the western calendar, to Vedic astrology or the Chinese New Year are very popular but a gemstone that matches your Celtic birth sign could be very special indeed.
