Day of the Week Gemstones

It is a long held  tradition to wear gemstones that correspond with our birth dates. These birthstone lists are found all over the  Internet, although they rarely agree on the specific gems. There is another set of birthstones that is not so well-known, but deserving of our attention. These gems represent the seven days of the week. By wearing the gems corresponding to the day of the week upon which we are born, we get the most we can from that particular day. This simple practice also helps us to link up with our Day Ray or soul energies.
