About December Birthstone Rings
Turquoise is an opaque gemstone, especially common in Asian and Native American jewelry. Colors range from green with a hint of blue to deep sky blue. It is one of the few stones where jewelers and gemologists can often tell which mine a stone came from. Tanzanite was first commercially discovered in Tanzania in 1967 so only available in more recent vintage jewelry. Zircon, which is a natural stone (unlike cubic zirconia), occurs in a number of colors, with the most precious being blue, green, and orange. Sometimes brown-yellow zircon is heated to change it to a more valuable color.
