These posts tell the lore of birthstones before they were changed by the corporate jewelry store chains in the early 1900's.
This post is for the month of January & the Capricorn Zodiac Sign.
It has been often believed that Garnet was the birthstone for January babies. This still proves to be correct; a stone that wasn't changed because it could be easily obtained. The different garnets offering different undertones of red was a selling point for these stores therefore it was an easy stone to keep. It was also profitable to keep this stone for January as it is the color of the New Year in many cultures.
•The First True birthstone for January is Garnet. If you are a Capricorn born in December your second birthstone is Ruby and if you are a Capricorn born in January your second birthstone is again a garnet. This is the first but not the last time there is a double birthstone in the birthplate family. Those with a double garnet birthstone were often given a snake bone at birth. Their birthright is Animal Medicine and they weld that power more so than anyone. Each stone has so much to do w/ the birthright of each zodiac & each individual. It is the top of their birthplate & a part of a group of stones that can guide them through their life. Such tradition is sacred & it is sad that corporations changed them to suit higher profit margins. Tradition, lore, and our roots are all so sacred in my opinion and shouldn't be tampered with.
