Astrologers associate certain stones and their colors with the definite signs of Zodiac. Different gems were worn for good luck and protection, to ward of illness and were believed to possess healing qualities. The color of the gem was said to give it power. We meet mentioning of birthstones even in the Bible. There is a legend that breastplate of Aaron which is encrusted with twelve different gems held the original set of birthstones.
