December Birthstones: The Many Beautiful Shades of Blue!

December babies might be the luckiest of all.  Not only do they get to celebrate their birthdays during the joyous holiday season, but when it comes to birthstones, they get to choose between brilliant blue gemstones like tanzanite, zircon, turquoise, and the most popular, blue topaz.

Varying in beautiful shades of blue, these stones are relatively inexpensive, and according to the American Gem Society, they range from the oldest on earth (zircon), to one of the first mined and used in jewelry (turquoise), to one of the most recently discovered (tanzanite).

Then there’s blue topaz, the second most popular gemstone in the world, known for its calming blue hues.  But it’s important to know that naturally occurring blue topaz is very rare.  As a result, the gem is artificially treated through irradiation and heat treatment to create its brilliant blue shades – ranging from light-blue or “sky blue” to deep blue or “London blue.”

According to ancient beliefs, blue topaz has been believed to improve focus and inspire creativity.  Making it an excellent gemstone option for those who love self-expression – a compatible quality of both December zodiac signs, Sagittarius and Capricorn.
