April Birthstones - Alternatives to Diamonds!
April Babies are Diamonds!!
Since Diamonds are a bit pricey to bead with, we have the very popular alternative used worldwide....Quartz Crystal!
is another alternative April birthstone recently chosen for its clear color and similarity to diamond. Clear quartz, sometimes called rock crystal, has also been designed and widely accepted as a birthstone for April.
Quartz gemstones also come in colored varieties, as specific impurities in the crystal structure of quartz create yellow citrine gemstones or purple amethyst crystals. However, when using quartz as an April birthstone, the classic clear quartz is ideal. Known as the "Universal Crystal", quartz is a popular and powerful stone. Metaphysically, quartz is thought to amplify, balance, store, focus, and transmit energy. It is also a stone of clarity, and can increase inspiration and creativity. It is also useful to improve concentration and retention of knowledge. Even today the powerful vibrations of quartz crystals are used in electronics, crystal healing, and rituals.
Another special alternative April birthstone from the quartz family is herkimer diamond.
are not diamonds at all, but are unique quartz crystals from Herkimer County, NY. Their name bears the term "diamond" because they form as double terminated crystals, giving them the physical shape of a diamond with points at each end. Metaphysically, herkimer diamonds are prized as the most powerful of quartz crystals.
