December Birthstone: Turquoise
December is the end of the year and a time of great joy and bitter sorrows. The holiday seasons are bunched here as a way to celebrate a long and eventful year. Love and happiness is in the air, but many people do not make it through this month, giving it a tinge of sorrow.
Turquoise, a light blue gem, matches this month well. It is a love charm that is symbolic of positive success and relaxation. Those born in this month often achieve great levels of success or have ambitions to try new things or go places that have never been visited. Travel is huge for them.
