Traditional Birthstones
Often combined with modern birthstone lists, traditional birthstones are older society-based birthstones.

Modern Birthstones
In 1912, in an effort to standardize them, the American national association of jewelers, Jewelers of America, officially adopted a list, shown in the "Modern" column in the table below. It is currently the most widely used list in the United States and many other locations, including Australia and Thailand. Some alternates have been adopted to be a less expensive substitute for a cut stone. Tanzanite was added to December by the American Gem Trade Association in 2002.

Mystical Birthstones
Mystical Birthstones are of Tibetan origin and date back over a thousand years

Ayurvedic Birthstone
The Ayurvedic birthstone list is from the ancient Indian medicine and philosophy dating back to ancient India (1500 BC).
