Celtic Birthstones

Though not as well known as the common Western zodiac or the Chinese zodiac, Celtic tradition also provides us with a zodiac. This system is based on their thirteen lunar months, each one of which is associated with its own gemstone. Should the birthstones of your more recognized zodiac signs leave you wanting, consider incorporating your Celtic stone into your jewelry.
