Gemstones & Signs of the Zodiac




People choose crystals for themselves and as gifts according to a wide range of criteria.

One simple way to choose crystals for others is to select one of the crystals associated with the recipients's star sign (i.e. Astrology Sun Sign). That way the crystal may be given with at least a little piece of information, an indication that it was chosen with that very special friend or relative in mind.

Some tables only indicate one crystal per sign of the zodiac. Our research indicates that several crystals are associated with each astrological sign. This is just as well because it still leaves scope to choose a crystal gift, perhaps in the recipients favourite colour, or with some other consideration also in mind.
