December Birthstone: Zircon, Tanzanite and Turquoise

December birthdays have claim to three gemstones; Zircon, Tanzanite and Turquoise. Each of these gemstones carries a unique blue tone while Zircon can be found in a variety of colours, but blue is the overwhelming favourite.

I asked fellow team members what items they have in their Etsy shops that reflect these colours and would make great gift for people born in December….

My mini canvas painting ‘Bluescape’ is a celebration of vivid blues ~ perfect for someone who wants a traditional but unique gift for a December birthday. It was also painted by someone born in December (me).

Gazing at the sky is so ‘uplifting’ isn’t it. I made this piece because each of us needs to remember to put ourselves first as we are all precious and deserving. It’s only then too that we have the resources to support others.

The focal bead of this necklace is a beautiful large turquoise bead. It has long been regarded as a protective stone and a bringer of good fortune.
“Turquoise” is derived from “pierre turquoise”, – Turkish stone” – since Turkey was the main source in years past.Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is has been prized as a gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue.

I’m sure washing up or wiping surfaces with such a beautiful turquoise coloured cloth will help you forget you’re actually doing housework ! Knowing that it’s made from a soft, recycled yarn will help even more.
