Zodiac gemstones are also known as Astral stones. The word Astral is derived from Astrology and has been an important part of holistic beliefs for centuries. Astrology was created originally as a method for telling time. Essentially acting as the calendar for the universe.
These periods of time are divided into twelve sections, which are believed to represent the tewlve tribes of Israel in the book of Exodus. Each section, or Zodiac sign is associated with a particular gemstone. The idea is that your Astrological sign is lined to a gemstone on earth that enables the wearer to tap into his or her hidden power.
