There is a certain link between a birthstone and your personality. A birthstone is said to heighten some features of your personality. Therefore, it is not strange to see someone admiring a certain birthstone.
However, this does not limit you to the birthstone of your birth month if you prefer another. Each birthstone has its own characteristics such as those of the astrological signs.
The use of birthstones has origins from as early as the biblical times where for example, Aaron was the trustee of twelve stone that symbolized the 12 tribes of Israel. In the bible set-up, Aaron was a leader who held the position of High Priest among the Israelites.
An evaluation of the stones that Aaron had shows that there is a huge similarity with the stones that are currently in use. The origin of the contemporary birthstone is the National Association of Jewelers who originated a list of gemstones in 1912. You can see the modern day birthstones as follows:
