Gemstone Meanings: Zodiac Signs and Corresponding Gems

Gemstone Meanings: Zodiac Correspondences

I am a self-confessed rock junkie, so this page on gemstone meanings according to your zodiac sign is a no-brainer. This page outlines gemstones according to zodiac correspondences and birthstone meanings.

As I was writing this page, I rummaged through my gigantic bowl of stones, oogling over each one like a crow; mesmerized by the bling-bling.

I also had a chance to reminisce about my anestral mothers who were total gem-freaks too. These ladies taught me a great deal about the powers our natural environment has to heal and transform our realities.

Do a little of your own transforming by incorporating a few of these birthstones and gemstone meanings into your daily life. Observe any shifting in your awareness as you wear or work with these zodiac stones. The results might surprise you.

“People, like un-cut diamonds,

have shining qualities beneath a rough exterior.”
