Precious gems were first associated with signs of the zodiac and were worshiped for their special gemstone meanings. Birthstones are sought after for religious jewelry, in particular in reference to the gems of Aaron’s breastplate and Islamic gemstones. Our favorite Lapis Lazuli is considered in the Birthstone list from ancient times.
According to Wikipedia, a birthstone is a gemstone that represents a person’s month of birth. It was believed by the first century Jewish historian Josephus that there was a connection between the twelve stones in Aaron’s breastplate, the twelve months of the year and the twelve signs of the zodiac.
Josephus gave two different lists for the twelve stones. St. Jerome said the Foundation Stones of the New Jerusalem would be appropriate for Christians to use. Religious treaties involving a particular stone with an apostle were written because the book of Revelation stated “their name would be inscribed on the Foundation Stones and his virtue”.
New Jerusalem is how heaven is named in the book of Revelations. In Revelations, the blue sky is referred as sapphires, but like we already read in Lapis Lazuli Religion, they are referring to the heavenly Lapis Lazuli and not to sapphire like we know it.
The modern lists of birthstones that exist today have little to do with either the breastplate or the Foundation Stones of Christianity. Customs, tastes and confusing translations have distanced them from their historical origins.
Ancient traditional birthstones are society-based birthstones. In an effort to standardize birthstones, the National Association of Jewelers adopted a list in 1912. Although some authors call this list “nothing but a piece of unfounded salesmanship”.
Lapis Lazuli is the Traditional Birthstone for December and the accepted gem for the seventh and ninth wedding anniversary. It is the Planetary stone for Capricorn and the Zodiac stone for Libra.
The famous gemologist G.F Kunz, author of “The Curious Lore of Precious Stones”, said, “There is no doubt that the owner of a ring or ornament set with a birthstone is impressed with the idea of possessing something more intimately associated with his or her personality than any other stone, however beautiful or costly, The idea that birthstones possess a certain indefinable, but nonetheless real significance, has long been present and still holds a spell over the minds of all who are gifted with a touch of imagination and romance.”
Natural Color Birthstone
The natural color wheel shows the progression of life and color on the planet earth. In opposition to other astrological signs and other birthstone lists. This wheel shows us the color or our birth time on earth.
The wheel is read in counterclockwise order. Start from the winter solstice at the top and follow the color wheel and the year around to the left. The second inner ring shows the days of the year as the year and the color changes progress through the greens of spring, the yellows of summer, and the reds of autumn.
Blue is the color of the true natural birthstones of those born as the world awaits the vernal equinox and spring (February 19 – March 19). This is a time when new life is about to burst forth, a time of faith and trust.
Like we’ve read in this blog before, Lapis Lazuli is the gem of trust. When we seek to become more sincere, act more responsibly, or become more trustworthy or faithful, lapis give us the focus we require.
Lapis are excellent aids in ensuring that we are acting out our lives as worthy of the trust of our friends, acquaintances and community.
The human energy field surrounds your body, and if you want to improve its health, you may use a stone that gives off a vibration that can be of benefit.
So this applies to your zodiac birthstones as well. The most important point when using any crystal is to keep it within your aura. For its full birthstone healing powers effect one should have to own all twelve and alternate them monthly.
Lapis Lazuli has been considered a Birthstone since the Breastplate of Aaron. It has been in different lists of birthstones in time. It has been a Sagittarius Birthstone in both the traditional birthstone and in the Modern birthstone lists. And it has been a December Birthstone on the Ancient Birthstone list.
