A birthstone is a gemstone that is usually connected with a person's birth month. Birthstonesare also thought to have healing abilities and to bring their owners luck. Let's see if these birthstones that we are about to discuss also emits the energy we've stated.
There are more birthstones than others. This is because some stones are mined less often than others, and some stones are more popular with people.
You need to know a birthstone's rarity value to know if it is rare or not. This can be judged by the number of carats, the color, the clarity, the cut, and other things. A rare gemstone is one that has an unusual mix of colors or hasn't been found in as many places as other stones.

Next, one of the rarest birthstones is the ruby. Most of the time they are red, but sometimes they are pink or purple.
It comes from the Latin word "rubus," which means "red." Since rubies are usually red stones, the name comes from the Latin word for red. Ruby stones were first worn by Indian royalty, who saw them as signs of power and wealth.
Ruby stones are very rare because they only come from a small mine in Myanmar (formerly Burma). The mine closed in 1996, but rubies that were mined before that time can still be found on the black market.

The mineral Zoisitecomes in a blue-purple form called Tanzanite, which is a rare gemstone. It was first found in Tanzania in 1967. The word "Tanzania" in Swahili means "blue stone," which is where its name comes from.
It can be deep blue or violet-blue, and it is sometimes called African Jade. There are only two places on Earth where Tanzanite stones are mined. One is near Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and the other is near Mbale in Uganda.
Tanzanite is a relatively new birthstone. Most Western zodiac signs didn't recognize it as a birthstone until 2012 when it became one of the 12 Western birthstones.
The December babies who are unable to afford their own diamond are given tanzanite as an alternative to the more expensive diamond as their birthstone. This makes tanzanite the rarest of the three birthstones.
Rare gems are seldom seen. A red diamond is the rarest birthstone. The 5.1-carat Moussaieff Red is the most famous red diamond. If this birthstone were sold at auction, it would break the record for a diamond, which is $71 million.
How relatively rare is amethyst? It is not very rare because there are a lot of them, but the better the color, the rarer it is.
