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 maybe not so well-known, but deserving of our attention. These gems represent the seven days of the week. By wearing the gems corresponding to each day of the week, we can get more from each and every day. This simple practice of wearing the correct stone helps us to link up with the Day Ray energies of that 24 hour period.
