Whether you’re a July girl or an October baby, your birth month boasts its very own birthstone. But aside from looking pretty and adorning everything from your home to your jewelry collection, birthstones hold a whole host of holistic and beautifying benefits that can transform you from top to toe.

Gemstones have been used for healing purposes for centuries, with loyalists claiming they can do everything from boosting energy to calming frayed nerves as well as balancing the mind and body. “The effect of gemstones can be felt with the tiniest piece of crystal because they store great amounts of energy,” say the Sheikhas behind gemstone-infused beauty brand Prismologie.

Why? Because they’re all about vibrations. Our bodies are made up of 60 percent water, and liquids aren’t very stable and produce less steady vibrations. Gemstones, in contrast, are solid and create steady vibrations. This means that the effects they can have on our bodies are profound. Read on to discover the perfecting powers of your birthstone and shop the best beauty buys for your special month.

The stone was used to help treat various illnesses and ailments in ancient times thanks to its healing properties. It’s soft enough to make for a great gentle and natural exfoliant too.
