Carrying or wearing your birthstone replicates the vibrations of the stars and planets at your time of birth. These will be drawn down towards you, boosting your aura. This is protective physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. It is also thought that such birthstones will increase your body’s own healing power. You have more energy, recover quicker form illness and injury and feel stronger emotionally and mentally to cope with life’s everyday stresses and strains.
