Unveiling Zodiac Gemstones and Their Profound Spiritual Meanings

Thousands of years ago, when our ancestors looked up at the sky, they saw a field of lights. They didn’t know what they were but they noticed something amazing about them. They had effects on seasons, tides, harvests so it seemed pretty logical that these lights shaped everything else in our lives. We call these beautiful and mystic lights as stars today. 

It’s quite interesting that almost every ancient civilization around the world invented astronomy but the zodiac signs as we know today originates from ancient Babylonian astronomy. They were the ones who discovered there were 12 new moons over the course of a year. Then they marked each one by a constellation. And it wasn’t until a few centuries later, the connection between gemstones and zodiac signs were formulated.

At ASSUWA, we are more than jewelry creators; we are storytellers, weaving history and nature into wearable art. We unfold forgotten tales from the mythology and history discovering the depths of our collective consciousness. And the connection between gemstones and zodiac signs is one them.

So let’s embark on a journey through time and space, exploring the captivating history of zodiac gemstones and their profound spiritual meanings. These gemstones not only dazzle with their beauty but also hold a deeper significance - they are believed to have healing properties that align with the energies of the zodiac signs.
