Since zodiac stones are linked to the planet that rules over that zodiac sign, I recommend choosing a zodiac crystal rather than a modern birthstone. 

People have been wearing and using Zodiac stones for thousands of years. The earliest known list of western Zodiac stones was compiled in the first century, using correspondences from the Breastplate of Aaron, by Josephus. 

Garnet was popular among royalty and aristocrats as well as the animals of Noah's Ark can thank a large Garnet stone for providing the only light on their biblical journey and guiding them safely to land.

When wearing your gemstones visualize an intention for your stone, whether it's to attract new love, find balance in a hectic world, or something else close to your heart. Sit quietly with the stone and let it take away your fears, worries, and anxieties while guiding you on your journey.
