     The birthstone seems to originate from Biblical times. The Breastplate of Aaron, referred to in Exodus 39:10-14:
          10 - Then they mounted four rows of precious stones on it. In the first row there
              was a ruby, a topaz and a beryl;
          11 - In the second row a turquoise, a sapphire and an emerald;
          12 - In the third row a jacinth, an agate and an amethyst;
          13 - In the fourth row a chrysolite, an onyx and a jasper. They were mounted in
              gold filigree settings.
          14 - There were twelve stones, one for each of the names of the sons of Israel,
              each engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes.
     The precise list of birthstones however can be found in Revelation 21:19-20 where the foundation stones of the new Jerusalem are listed, in the order of the Roman calendar:
          19 - And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of
              precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third,
              a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
          20 - The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth,
              beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the
              twelfth, an amethyst.



<img:stuff/FancyScrollish_button4left.png>   The Four Elements   <img:stuff/FancyScrollish_button4right.png>

...Fire - Earth - Air - Water...

     <img:stuff/Star-14_bullet.png>Each sign is associated with one of the classical elements (fire, earth, air, or water) and one of the three modalities (cardinal, fixed, or mutable). It is also associated with an area of concern: personal, social, or universal.
        <img:stuff/Star-12_bullet.png>Fire signs are associated with action, passion, and energy. In combination with the other elements, fire feels that earth will smother it, water will drown it, but air will fan and enliven it.
        <img:stuff/Star-12_bullet.png>Earth signs are associated with sensation, stability and practicality. In combination with the other elements, earth feels that air will dry it, fire will parch it, but water will refresh and nourish it.
        <img:stuff/Star-12_bullet.png>Air signs are associated with thought, perspective and communication. In combination with the other elements, air feels that water will obscure it, earth will suffocate it, but fire will inspire and uplift it.
        <img:stuff/Star-12_bullet.png>Water signs are associated with growth processes, identification and emotion. In combination with the other elements, water feels that fire will make it boil, air will evaporate it, but earth will shape and channel it.



<img:stuff/FancyScrollish_button4left.png>   The Qualities   <img:stuff/FancyScrollish_button4right.png>

...Cardinal - Fixed - Mutable...

     <img:stuff/Star-14_bullet.png>The Qualities assign the Signs into Quadruplicities, groups of four.
        <img:stuff/Star-12_bullet.png>Cardinal signs are associated with initiation and creativity. They are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.
        <img:stuff/Star-12_bullet.png>Fixed signs are associated with focus, individuality and determination. They are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
        <img:stuff/Star-12_bullet.png>Mutable signs are associated with resourcefulness, holism and adaptability. They are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.

2008-08-13 [Chimes]: Hello Artsie,

Would you mind if I reviewed this wiki for the next issue of The Town Herald? The issues theme is 'The Zodiac' and this seems like the perfect wiki to review. :]

- [Chimes]

2008-08-14 [Artsieladie]: Hello, [Chimes]! :) No, I don't mind at all. I think it's wonderful, actually! :) You might want to also check out [Mom]'s, What's your sign?. As a matter of fact, I should have added it here, but when I put this wiki together, I might not have known about [Mom]'s yet, because I made this wiki before Birthdays On Elftown. :D

2008-08-14 [Chimes]: Hooray! I shall look into it. Thank you for letting me do this. ^^

2008-08-14 [Artsieladie]: You're welcome and thank you for doing this and using my wiki! I love it when my wikis can be useful and/or what's on them. :D

2008-08-14 [Chimes]: It fits the theme perfectly. You're actually a life saver, I had gotten a little panicky about what to review before I stumbled on this little goldmine. :)

2008-08-15 [Artsieladie]: hehe I like that description ...'this little goldmine'. :)

2008-08-15 [Chimes]: It's true. I was mesmerised by all the pretty things and the mention of semi-precious stones.

2008-08-15 [Artsieladie]: This wiki I actually built first on Elf12 as a sub part for The Moogle Press, a netpaper there. I have a tendency to make things very colourful, because I love colour, I guess. For me colour seems to make things brighter and more cheerful. :)

2008-08-16 [Chimes]: That is very true, colour does make things more cheerful. Also: Hooray! You are giving me insight... I can put that in my review too. :D

2008-08-16 [Artsieladie]: hehe Some of my jibber-jabber has a little value, too? ;) I'm always willing to be helpful, if I can be. :)

2008-08-16 [Chimes]: Jibber-jabber always has value. :D Especially if you have the gift of the gab.

2008-08-17 [Artsieladie]: I guess. :) It kinda' depends with me, whether I do or not jibber-jabber. If I'm feeling talkative, I'll chat away, if I'm a bit distracted, though, I might not and then it depends if it's a topic I feel knowledgeable enough about or not. ;P

2008-08-17 [Chimes]: Ah, see - I speak nonsense most of the time. >.> It can be amusing or annoying - it depends on your point of view. XD
