For centuries, gems have played significant roles in cultures and civilizations. These precious stones have played such diverse roles in society as representing the twelve tribes of Israel in the Bible, as well as being the purveyors of magical qualities in ancient Egypt. Birthstones were thought to grant people desirable attributes, and the symbolism of the birthstone holds great meaning to many people even today.
