Significance of December Birthstone- Turquoise

December Birthstone-Turquoise

Amidst the various Navratna symbolizing the nine planets since ages, there has been mixed perceptions of people on gemstones. However, if we go by gemology, these semi-precious stones draw certain energy from their respective planets and channelize it into the wearer’s body. Just as medicines remove a particular deficiency, gemstones remove deficiencies in human faith and destiny thereby inducing good luck and positivity. Turquoise, commonly known as firoza, has been used to make protective amulets since history.

Carrying multiple zodiac signs of Sagittarius and Capricorn, December born people are ruled by the planet Jupiter.  These Christmas babies are loyal, generous and highly ambitious. With will power and perseverance, December souls have the potential to produce amusing novels and books (credits to their good sense of humor). Popular for their concentration and photographic memory, their curiosities sometimes make them impatient and hasty. Babies born in this chilly month often suffer from throat, lungs and skin disorders.

Turquoise gemstone gained eccentric popularity due to Bollywood actor Salman Khan who adorns turquoise bracelet as a lucky charm. When placed on the throat chakra (pendant), turquoise helps in conquering barriers and obstacles. It brings peace, clarity and reduces the chance of panic attacks.  Bestowed in beautiful jewelry such as rings, bracelet and necklace, turquoise removes depression and facilitates overall growth.

Regarded as the most opaque gemstone, turquoise is available in different shades of blue, aqua and green color. Turquoise is widely used in bead necklaces across the globe. Combining the spirits of blue sky and green land, this gemstone makes the surroundings happy and cheerful. No matter which turquoise jewelry you choose for yourself, it will bring happiness in big packets. Happy Birthday Sagittarians!
