Find out which semiprecious and precious stones are associated with your horoscope sign and decide for yourself whether you want to wear them as part of earrings, necklaces, rings or bracelets.
Aries – Heliotrope
One of the oldest zodiac birthstones associated with the sign of the archer, the heliotrope is available in two varieties. The green chalcedony with yellow inclusions is called plasma, but you should be looking for the green variety with red inclusions, either red jasper or iron oxide, called bloodstones.
Taurus – Sapphire
While sapphires are found in many colors, including yellow and pink, it’s the blue and green varieties that are linked to the sign of the bull. As horoscope sign gemstones, sapphires can be an inspired choice for jewelry that you wear daily, regardless of their color.
Gemini – Agate
The microcrystalline variety of silica, agate is the perfect choice for Gemini when you’re looking for zodiac birthstones. Found in volcanic rocks or ancient lavas, agates are available in many colors, sometimes found in the same gemstone, which is called a rainbow agate.

Leo – Onyx
A banded variety of chalcedony with bands of alternating colors, onyx is ones of the zodiac birthstones that’s hardest to find in its true form. Most gemstones sold as onyx are produced from the staining of agate and other carbonated materials, which are softer than the original variety.
Virgo – Carnelian
One of the few horoscope sign gemstones available in a single color family, carnelian is a brownish-red mineral, but some varieties are as light as pale orange, while others are almost black. Carnelian is perfect for embossed rings and it was used for centuries as part of seal rings, because wax does not cling to it.

Yellow and green are the colors associated with zodiac birthstones for those born under the sign of Libra and that gives you more than one choice. Peridot gemstones, available only in olive green, are a great options, but so are other types of chrysolite, including chrysoberyl, apatites and opals.
Scorpio – Beryl
While pure beryl is colorless, it’s one of the horoscope sign gemstones that can be found in a wide variety of colors, which have different impurities. Aquamarine, the turquoise variety of beryl is a great choice for Scorpios, but golden varieties can be just as beautiful.
Sagittarius – Topaz
Blue is the color of choice for zodiac birthstones with a special significance for the Sagittarius. The main choice is blue topaz, but other turquoise or blueish gemstones are just as suitable for those born under the sign of the archer, including lapis lazuli.
Capricorn – Ruby
Red horoscope sign gemstones are the perfect choice for a Capricorn. Ruby, whether it’s pink or blood-red, is a beautiful stone. While the clear and deep red stones are the most expensive, you can easily find lighter shades suitable for a pendant you can wear every day.
