Birth Stones.  I can never remember which ones go with which month.  (or anniversary gifts, for that matter … but that’s for a different blog post!)

So after searching around a little bit, I came across this handy dandy reference chart from Gemologyonline.com!  Now there is no excuse for forgetting them 😉

“Birth stones, as we know them today, is a list of stones that was first assembled in 1912 by the American National Association of Jewelers. This list has historical merit, but substitutions have been made, based on relative availability.”

My birthstone is amethyst.  What is yours?!
