Smile **Birthstone**



Hey guys ,

I think this thread would be more of a girly thread, but guys might know more about it.
And who knows, maybe you would get ideas on what to get for a special some one .


So let me start

Last weekend I and some really cool friends of mine had a girl’s day in watching football in which Italy sadly lost.
And my friend went all loco big time , trust me if you have a weak heart you would not survive the screaming , lol
Then after the huge defeat we decided to go out, just for a round

But with screamy’s driving skills we changed our mind and thought a stop would keep as alive for few more hours

So we went to Bareeq Alsha6e

Ofcorse we didn’t have a place in mind that we wanted to go to , so we just walked around till we end up drinking fresh juice .

But just before we end up having fresh juice we past by a stand in the middle of Bareeq al sh6y

The stand had jewellery,

But what caught our eyes or the eyes of few of us is the gemstones
So while some of us were really interested in the stones and their price
And the others act to be interested
While one could not act at al l- lol kidding
Point is we then started asking about our birthstone

And the dude in the stand was kind a heavy hearer, some of us had to whistle so he could hear us . (The poor man)
Any how the four of us got to have a look at our birthstones and their price. Some of us even decided who they’ll ask to buy the stones on their upcoming birthday.

So all that made me want to share with you guys some things about Birthstones

So let me talk about them by month- star sign

Aquarius Birthstones (Jan. 21-Feb.18) he he

This stone has mine written all over it. So for my upcoming birthday you all know what to buy for me .

Garnet is a stone of high refraction and durability. Can be found in many colors
The most common color is deep red.

I think they meant Bloody red, but deep red sounds good too.

Taurus Birthstones (Apr. 21-May 21)....

Diamond - The hardest substance found in nature. It has a broad color range, high refraction, lots of "fire". It is a symbol of commitment

That is one expensive birthstone
.








Gemini Birthstones (May 22-Jun. 21)

Emerald - Type of Beryl, the green color is caused by chromium & iron.
It is believed that the bright green color would expose the faithfulness of their significant other.


Emerald Agate - variation of quartz that has very small crystals giving it immense variety in colours and forms, therefore the agate family is the most versatile of the gem stone families. It's a power stone. It tones and strengthens the body and mind. It imparts a sense of strength and courage.

Alexandrite - Gemstone discovered in the Ural Mountains and named for Alexander II, tsar of Russia. The natural stones are very rare and very expensive. Both natural and synthetic Alexandrite changes colors. When the light is natural sunlight or fluorescent light, the natural stone will appear to be green - in incandescent light the stone will appear red. Synthetic Alexandrite, in incandescent light, has a purple color similar to Amethysts in daylight it changes to a blue-violet color
.

Libra Birthstones (Sep. 23-Oct. 23)

Sapphire - Stones usually thought of as deep blue color. Sapphires can be nearly any color, from orange-pink, golden, white, and even black. Star Sapphires have rutile crystal inclusions that cause a six-pointed-star effect. This gemstone provides its wearer with spiritual enlightenment and inner peace. Known as the gem of destiny, it can help make your dreams come true.









Scorpio Birthstones (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)

Opal - "Opal" comes from Latin and means "precious stone". They are made of layers of silica that have been deposited making the stone multicoloured. Black Opals are the most precious and have the fieriest colors. Care must be taken so that Opals are in a protected setting - they can break or shatter if struck. Beliefs associated with the wearing of opal have varied: the early Greeks claimed that opals gave their owners the powers of prophecy; Romans adored it as a token of hope and purity. During the Medieval period, a change in the color of an opal was believed to indicate if the wearer was in good health.

Capricorn Birthstones (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)



Blue Topaz - A quartz crystal from light to deep blue color. Blue Topaz is favoured for its beautiful lustre and color.

Zircon - Zircon is NOT the same material as the artificial gem material Cubic Zirconium (CZ). The natural stone resembles diamonds in luster and fire and are usually colorless. But Zircons can also be found in colors of browns and greens. Heat treated, the stones can be made blue or golden colors.

Very intersting.

Thanks for sharing but be careful as not everystone can be suitable for everyone as they contain powers that might be negative or postive depending on your nature.

cheers
