Birthstone Charts – Modern, Official or Traditional??

There are a variety of Birthstone Charts as you may have already discovered!

There are different charts by era (traditional v modern), by country (eg. Polish, Italian), by culture (eg. Arabic, Hebrew), or by Zodiac sign (eg. astrological, planetary).
