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.
The Four Elements
...Fire - Earth - Air - Water...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
...Cardinal - Fixed - Mutable...
The Qualities assign the Signs into Quadruplicities, groups of four.
Cardinal signs are associated with initiation and creativity. They are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.
Fixed signs are associated with focus, individuality and determination. They are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
Mutable signs are associated with resourcefulness, holism and adaptability. They are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.
