Not Your Birthstone?

MY ANSWER: It’s perfectly okay to wear a crystal or stone that is some other month or zodiac sign’s birthstone. It’s also okay to wear a gemstone that isn't any month or astrology sign’s birthstone.

Crystals that are birthstones are symbols and energy patterns of a particular month of birth, but also have other energy. It’s kind of like the color red is the symbol for stopping in a stop light, but can also be equally powerful in totally unrelated things like Santa hats.

If you love aquamarine even though your birthstone is amethyst, by all means, wear aquamarine. If you feel drawn to zoisite though citrine is your November birthstone, feel free to wear zoisite without concerns about energy problems.

You can find traditional, modern and Biblical lists of birthstones here, in case you’re curious to learn more about them.
