December Birthstones: Turquoise, Tanzanite, and Zircon


December babies are lucky because they have not one, not two, but three gorgeous birthstones to choose from: Tanzanite, Zircon and Turquoise. These beautiful wintery, blue hues, makes each of these stones the ideal Christmas or Hanukkah gift.


Tanzanite is a rare gemstone that has only ever been found in one place: a mountain range in Tanzania. It was accidentally discovered by a Masai tribesman in the year 1967, making it the most recent addition to the list of December birthstones. It has a distinctive, rich blue color that ranges from light blue to royal blue to deep purple.Â
