December is one of the most anticipated months of the year. People associate love, hope, and happiness in the spirit of giving. Astrologists also believe December is a significant month, as those born have a magnificent gem as representation. However, what makes December an incredibly unique month is its two zodiac signs and multiple stones. The December gemstones are tanzanite, zircon, and turquoise. Each is stunning shades of blue and ranges from the oldest on Earth to among the first mined.
In terms of zodiac signs, most of the month belongs to Sagittarius, from November 22nd until December 21st, but at midnight on December 22nd, Capricorn takes over until January 19th. Since both are December astrological signs, they have fundamental similarities and unique differences. Your astrological sign says a lot about you as a person, so it is imperative that you know your character and where you fall among the twelve Zodiac signs.
Overview of a Sagittarius
The zodiac sign for Sagittarius is fire. To be this sign means you have all the markings of a trustworthy friend - loyal, kind, and highly sophisticated. Turquoise signifies Sagittarius and brings emotional balance and communication. They are great conversationalists due to their intelligence and philosophical views on life. They remain with you when things get tough and will help you face challenges together. If you are a Sagittarius, get a zodiac pendant to signify who you are.
Overview of a Capricorn
Those born on December 22nd to the end of the month belong to the Capricorn group and have an earth sign. They are helpful in the workplace, hardworking, diligent, responsible, and tenacious. They excel in whatever role they are in, love a challenge, and stop at nothing to achieve their goals.
Garnet is the gem that represents a Capricorn. It is a precious red gemstone, meaning commitment and creativity. You can get a gorgeous garnet ring, like the one here, perfectly prong set with a split shank and high polish finish, as the gemstone is said to bring energies of luck, money, love, and hearing.
It is essential to note blue sapphire can also represent Capricorn, depending on the month's dates in which a person is born. Get a sapphire ring to match your other jewelry pieces.
Tanzanite, Zircon, and Turquoise
Since its discovery in 1967, tanzanite has become incredibly popular, which sales reflect. After sapphire, it is the fastest-selling colored gemstone. It became the much-needed addition to Zircon and Turquoise as the birthstone for December in 2002. Tanzanite initially was a cheaper alternative to the Blue Sapphire. However, it has established itself as a gemstone worthy of its gem and jewelry market stature.
Tanzanite is rare and precious. A significant attribute of tanzanite that makes it a must-have gemstone is that it is a trichroic gemstone. That means it is the only gemstone with three color axes: blue, purple, and reddish-brown. The angle you pick up and view the stone determines the color you see when picking up a Tanzanite gem.
The zircon represents positive energy, spiritual protection, happiness, and wisdom. It is the oldest material on Earth and is also sometimes called Blue Topaz. Buy a zircon ring to bring energies of luck, love, prosperity, and happiness. Turquoise instead represents good fortune, success, protection, and love. Turquoise rings are said to keep evil spirits away.
