As a Capricorn, what are my birthstone crystals?
TINA CARTER, SOUTHWOLD, SUFFOLK
TRADITIONALLY, GARNET is Capricorn’s birthstone and represents focus, commitment, courage and fortitude. It has powerful regenerating, cleansing and balancing qualities, which are all positive attributes of Capricorn’s ruling planet Saturn. These qualities of Saturn are represented by black and heavily metallic stones that are dense, protective and grounding, such as jet, which has been used since the Stone Age as a stone of protection.
Onyx gives courage and strength. Black tourmaline grounds, clears and protects the aura. Smokey quartz is strongly protective and an antidote to stress.
