December's birthstones offer three ways to fight the winter blues or in Australia represent the three beautiful shades of our oceans: tanzanite, zircon and turquoise.
These gems range from the oldest on earth (zircon), to one of the first mined and used in jewellery (turquoise), to one of the most recently discovered (tanzanite).
All of these stones beauty rivals even the most precious gems. Colourless zircon is a convincing replacement for diamond, tanzanite often substitutes sapphire, and turquoise is unmatched in its hue of blue.
Since the Early Ages, Turquoise (image of items on the right) has been believed to aid in spiritual growth and it is also associated with the mythical ability that attracts money, success and love. Its mysterious powers also include protection, healing, courage, friendship and luck. It relaxes the mind, and eases mental tension.
