Birth stones are assigned according to the month of birth and have a strong bond with the people born in the month that corresponds to them. You will be able to discover which is the energy that accompanies you, and to which you owe certain facets of your personality that before you did not know; but for that you must accompany us until the end.
I was not always so fond of stones, it was a long process that began knowing each time a little more about the importance that has had for humanity in the world of art stones such as lapis lazuli. So immense is its power that it was catalogued as one of the 12 Birth Stones, but, perhaps you are wondering: why? how does this stone influence me?
What is a “Birthstone”?
It all began in the first century when the sage Josephus, through research and studies, had the suspicion that there was a connection between the 12 stones in the pectoral of Aaron (which means “The 12 Tribes of Israel” according to Exodus) with the 12 months of the year and the 12 signs of the zodiac. Its discovery aroused the curiosity of expert historians. St. Jerome with his own analysis deduced that these 12 stones would be the appropriate stones for the use of Christians.
In 1912, the National (American) Jewelers Association (now called Jewelers of America) met in Kansas with the idea of discussing history and officially adopting a list with the idea of standardizing, and so it was for a long time until in 2002 this list was modified, and then in 2016.
Today the months assigned to some stones vary according to the tradition and culture of the country in which they live. Our beloved lapis lazuli has always been present as a birthstone, in spite of all the changes that humanity has witnessed, those who have believed in it have decided not to separate, but who are really under the protection of this stone?
Lapis lazuli: The most desired birthstone
Originally the lapis lazuli corresponds to those born in the month of December, but due to changes that sought to sell people more accessible stones, the history was modified. It is also the 7th and 9th anniversary stone and its zodiacal sign is Capricorn. However, in accordance with many studies and modifications they decided to assign this stone also to those born under the month of September. So if you were born in December, you carry by designation of the universe and history this blue stone for protection. And if your month is September, you have every right to choose it.
Lapis lazuli has always been an authentic veteran in the illustrious history of precious stones, and for that reason is one of the most used in the world to pay tribute and drive away evil, but we still wonder why?
As we all know the world is composed of positive vibrations and negative vibrations. In ancient times the belief was maintained that the stones have the ability to contain positive energy from the earth and in some cases to drive away the evil, particularly in the case of the 12 stones of the pectoral of Moses that since their appearance in the bible are considered sacred. This is where our beautiful blue stone appears.
After discovering this stone and venerating its beauty, the believers assured that its blue color has the capacity to give peace to whoever looks at it. Those born under December are characterized by being pure and sincere, and if you need any of these qualities, this stone will allow you to fill them, because it will open the door to yourself. If you have this stone nearby it means that you are carrying a world of wonderful energies.
