All of us do have our respective birthstone. Every month there is an assigned one, be it ruby, emerald, etc. Do you own at least a piece of your birthstone? Does it really make a difference when you wear one? Who started it anyway?

I am a birth baby of march, so my birthstones are bloodstone and aquamarine. I love both of these stones for I am a gem fanatic. They havent made a difference in my life, except now I have a favorite gemstone. As far as who came up with it, I think I saw something about it in wikipedia.org, but Im not sure.

Mine is garnet. I do have some garnet jewelry. Also ruby, emerald, sapphire and a lot of semi-precious stones.

Mine is Diamond and Sapphire being born in April. Imagine, who can own a diamond these days, of course those who has plenty of money but to most myLotters like me who depend on penny and cents in myLot, I think that is impossible. But I solve this problem already when I was able to acquire a stone equivalent of diamond. It is called Zircon and you will think it as a diamond at first glance, so don't stare at it when you see me in the street. And that is my preferred birthstone.

I born on the month of April and my birthstone if I am not mistaken its Emerald and I dont own an emerald stone. I guess it doesn't make any sense if you own one or not. I also dont know and no idea who started it.
