December Birthstone: Turquoise, Zircon, and Tanzanite

SS008 (1)December babies are fortunate to have the choice of three distinctly beautiful birthstones to choose from- Turquoise, Tanzania and Zircon. While all three have similar blue hues fitting of cooler weather, each is unique with their own set of healing properties and rich folklore.

Turquoise

Turquoise stones have been celebrated for centuries all over the world. Today, both stone and color continue to lead the charge in some of the most popular trends in fashion. The name ‘turquoise’ derives from the root word meaning ‘Turkish’, where it is thought the stone could have originated. It also hails as ‘gemstone of the people’, bringing good fortune to those who possess one.

One such example comes from ancient Persian royalty who wore the vibrant blue stone around their necks and wrists in an attempt to protect against unnatural death and ward off approaching doom. Turquoise is still known the world over as a natural protector. It is said to be especially beneficial for travelers, horse riders, airline pilots and crew members, and other who face occupational hazards.

Turquoise Benefits and Chemical Properties

With its cheerful color and rich mysticism, turquoise stones are said to inspire more confidence and open communication among the reticent, bring prosperity and good fortune, and serve as a symbol of faithfulness. However, a Mohs hardness rating of 6 means care should be taken to preserve its natural beauty.  For example, certain cosmetics, extreme heat and bright light have the potential to change its lustrous color. While no heavy cleaners or chemicals are recommended, cleaning the stone with a soft cloth every now and again is.

Zircon

Unfortunately, Zircon is often confused with the man-made diamond copycat cubic zirconia; however, the natural beauty in this dazzling gemstone has been highly revered since its discovery in the 1920’s. Soon after it flooded the market and has remained a classic since.

Today these beauties are mined all over South East Asia, Australia, and Myanmar, as well as France, Norway, and Canada. While Zircon comes in a naturally occurring range of colors, the most distinctive is the greenish blue shade found in December birthstones, yet depending on the shade, most fall between a 6 to a 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale.

Zircon History and Healing Properties

Best guess is that Zircon gets its name from the Arabic words “zar” and “gun”, which loosely translate to mean “gold” and “color”. Much like turquoise, zircon has been also been regarded as the must-have amulet for travelers. Worn on

the road, it is said to be a powerful pain reliever and provide protection from disease or injury, as well as to help ensure travelers a warm, cordial welcome. The stone is also believed to prevent insomnia by guaranteeing a restful night’s sleep, and thought to aid in digestion.

Tanzanite

In general, the rarer the stone, the more inherent value it has. Tanzanite is no exception. Derived from its namesake, the East African state of Tanzania, this unique beauty is found only one place in the world. Upon its discovery in 1967, specialists and tastemakers such as New York’s Tiffany & Co. hailed it as the ‘gemstone of the 20th century’. With the backing of a high-dollar ad campaign, Tanzanite quickly sparked enthusiastic reactions from the general public.

Over these last few decades, Tanzanite has emerged as one of the most ethically sourced stones in the industry. According to the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA), “an estimated 90 per cent of all tanzanite merchants are official members…and are thus bound by the high ethical standards of that organization.” Meaning that despite its rarity, only small scale, licensed professionals, are actively trading on the open market.

Tanzanite Cuts and Care

Care should be taken when wearing this rare gem. It registers 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale, so harsh chemicals, acidics and ultrasonic baths are discouraged. Because of a term the gem industry describes as polychromaticity, or light consisting of two or more wavelengths, the stone shows a variety of inherent colors ranging from blue, purple or brownish-yellow depending on which angle it’s viewed.

Thanks to its physical properties, Tanzanite can be cut into almost any shape imaginable. This, combined with its rare quality and ethical sourcing, make it a top choice for many engagement rings, especially those with creative designer cuts.

In short, though even if the weather outside is frightful, you can help your sweetheart feel warm and fuzzy this December by getting them a stone to help exude the confidence and individuality which is so

characteristic of Sagittarians.
