If you think about mineral stones, accompanying legends may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Did you know that there is deeper meaning behind birthstones and that legend says that the stones hold special powers for those who wear them? Birthstones are gemstones that represent each month of the year. Each birthstone has its own unique meaning and significance, for example luck or good health. If you are looking for a unique gift, what better than a stone with special powers? Birthstones are most commonly seen in jewellery, but owning the mineral stone itself is just as special and perhaps an even more unique gift idea. Read all about what mineral stones expert Trever Boyd has the say about the mystical of birthstones and what their powers are, for those born in their respective months.
Origin & NowThe story of the birthstones originated from the book of Exodus. Each stone represents one of the twelve tribes of Israel. Legend has it that a Jewish scholar saw twelve stones on a breastplate. After his discovery, he made a connection that the twelve stones represented the twelve months of the calendar year. Centuries later monks and scholars would wear the stone of that month and believed the stones held special mystical powers. Today the selection of birthstones has changed far from the original legend, but still holds its meaning. Here is the official modern birthstone calendar and an explanation of their powers.
The Pi Yao will capture good fortune in its stomach, and keep evil intentions (from both spirits and people) at bay.
This mystical good luck creature is the ninth son of the Heavenly Dragon whose task is to provide the blessings of good finance and wealth luck. A very fascinating fact about this lucky creature is that it does not have an anus, so that, despite its never-ending appetite, things go in yet never come out. This is a unique symbolism, indicating that money will come to you but never leave.
The Pi Yao is found in many places in Oriental countries, such as banks, casinos, and finance companies – anything that has to do with a benefit from monetary gain. Since ancient times, when it served to safeguard the homes of emperors and government officials, the Chinese have always admired and respected this extremely good luck symbol. It is a very loyal creature, and will always attempt to protect rid its owners life of bad luck and replace it with wealth luck.
