Zodiac Gemstones - A Detailed Guide

Zodiac Gemstones
Zodiac Gemstones

The Zodiac signs originated in Babylonia about 3000 years ago although human beings have been looking to the sun and stars for guidance both physical and spiritual since the dawn of civilization.

The placement of constellations in relationship to the sun was divided into 12 equal signs that were 30° wide and given names such as The Great Twins, The Scales, The Bull of Heaven which will sound familiar today.

The sun would move through these constellations at regular times during the year and gave rise to the 12 signs of the Zodiac – a Greek word meaning sculpted animals which reflected many of their names.

Astronomy was adopted by all the great ancient kingdoms of Egypt, Greece and Rome and used to bring order to a chaotic world, predict the seasons and the coming weather and forecast impending disasters.

Eventually it developed to include the fortunes and prospects of humans – first the king himself and then the rest of us.

Gemstones have long been appreciated for their spiritual strength and, much like birthstones, soon certain gemstones began to be associated with particular Zodiac star signs.

The planets, the elements, colors and superstition have combined to link each sign of the Zodiac to a number of gemstones.

We have created an easy-to-follow guide to let you know which gemstones traditionally match your sign as well as their color and spiritual attributes.

This guide will also come in handy when thinking about a gift for that special person in your life – if you are not sure what they would like a gemstone associated with his or her star sign would be ideal.

So which gemstone is the perfect one for you or your loved one – let’s find out.
