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).
Some birthstone charts have more than one gemstone per month or list secondary or alternative gemstones.
Sometimes even the same chart type, for example a Traditional Birthstone Chart, can differ from source to source.
The charts below are designed by Monthly Birthstones and are free for your own personal use. They are high resolution A4 pdf documents suitable for printing.
