You may have always thought of birthstones as simply being categorized by the month in which you were born. As the tradition has been alive since ancient times, a variety of ways to group birthstones have developed and evolved throughout the years: Modern, Traditional, Tibetan, Ayurvedic, Hebrew, and by Zodiac sign. For your ease, we have grouped all the stones in each of these categories with their applicable month, so that no matter what type of birthstone you're looking for, you can find it.  

-  "Traditional" birthstones are long-standing Western associations matching up to the Gregorian calendar. A charming little collection of short poems related to these such birthstones, was published in a pamphlet for Tiffany & Co released in 1917. You can read it here. - The "Modern" classification of birthstones was created in 1912 by the (American) National Association of Jewelers, in an effort to standardize the practice.

-  "Tibetan" follow from the indigenous Tibetan spiritual practice.

 - "Ayurvedic" birthstones come from the traditions of ancient India, where birthstones played a role in medicine and philosophy.  

-  "Hebrew" birthstones date back to the Judeo-Christian belief in the correlation between the 12 stones in Aaron's breastplate, the twelve months of the year, and the twelve signs of the zodiac. They can also correspond to the 12 tribes of Israel.
