December Birthstone – Turquoise, Zircon & Tanzanite
As we deepen into our darkest time of the year, December brings us 3 stones to bridge some light into the void of new beginnings:
Turquoise combining the Sky and earth in one beautiful gem, Natural Zircon, coming in an array colors can be rare and beautiful and finally the alluring Tanzanite, born out of Africa bringing new powerful frequencies to our mother earth.
TURQUOISE is great for working with the Throat Chakra, to foster honest and clear communication from the heart, and with Water and Air Elements. Enhancing intuition, Turquoise also enhances communication between the physical and spiritual realms. Use Turquoise to release old vows, express freely, and ease nerves when speaking in public. Turquoise is a protective stone, often being used for amulets. Turquoise is also a healing stone, providing strength and purification.
Metaphysically, Turquoise is considered to be a bridge between Heaven/Sky and Earth, grounding us while still remaining open to Spirit. Many Native American cultures believe Turquoise helps to connect the mind to the infinite possibilities of the Universe.
ZIRCON is a gemstone in its own right, and has been revered as a protective stone for centuries, enables its wearer to experience life with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and joy and share that joy with others. It can bring solace and peace after traumatic experiences and increase vitality after physical exertion. Zircon can help one to move on after a broken relationship, increasing your charisma when finding new love.
Physically, Zircon helps with muscle and bone disorders; relieves insomnia, allergies and vertigo; heals infections and viruses, and balances the pineal gland.
A relatively new gift from Mother Earth, TANZANITE was first discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, Africa. Tanzanite is the bluish-purple variety of Zoisite.
Tanzanite increases communication with the Spiritual world and facilitates access to ancient wisdom, especially to the spiritual knowledge of ancient indigenous tribal cultures. Tanzanite opens the Crown Chakra to show visualizations of higher spiritual realms. Good for spiritual exploration and inner journeys, Tanzanite aids visualization in meditations. Use Tanzanite to deepen guided group meditations.
The glow of Tanzanite increases your inner light, increasing health and vitality.
Physically, Tanzanite is a wonderful stone to use in soothing depression, anxiety and panic. Use to aid the immune system and ease inflammation.
