The Meaning Behind the August Birthstone

August is a special month; it has claimed two birthstones! The Peridot and Spinel work together to empower and influence everyone who wears them. Anyone born in this month loves wearing both the lime green and ruby red birthstones because of how well they complement one another.

About Birthstones
Birthstones are colorful gemstones. In ancient times, gemstones were believed to possess magical powers. People often carried them around for luck, health, and wealth. This tradition has carried on to the present day, but they are not referred to as birthstones.

While back in the day, people simply carried around colors and attached the significance of each color to a power, the American Gem Society decided to give each color a name. The society also decided to pick birthstones for each month.

With so many gemstones in different colors, August ended up with two. People born in this month who wear the two birthstones (Peridot and Spinel) receive power, influence, protection, and happiness. The Peridot is what empowers and guides people, while the Spinel keeps people from harm and sadness away.


It’s possible to wear these beautiful gemstones by themselves or together.
