Birth Stones:

A birthstone is the "gemstone associated with the date of one's birth, the wearing of which is commonly thought to bring good luck or health. Supernatural powers have long been attributed by astrologers to certain gemstones." 
- from Encyclopedia Britannica

Some months have two "birthstones." The month has a faceted birthstone and an opaque birthstone.  Choose the birthstone that best fits your taste.
