My birthstone is emerald. I love emeralds because of their beautiful green color. Is it really a coincidence that one of my favorite colors is green?

My birthstone is an opal, but I really don't care for them. They aren't particularly strong and aren't visually pleasing to me. I prefer a pink tourmaline, which tends to be the alternative stone to an opal (however, less common to find than an opal). In turn, an alternate for pink tourmaline is the pink sapphire, which is a lovely color and quite strong.

Wow! I'm the only Aprilian. :hmm:

Actually, not quite. My birthday is April 1st, and as such my birthstone would also be diamond.

Like Mandy said, though, most months and star signs have multiple birthstones. Another common birthstone for my star sign is Bloodstone, but that's typically associated with March. Sapphire was traditionally associated with April in some traditions, but it's been moved to September in modern times.

Diamond seems to be the most commonly accepted stone, though. Here's some info about it in that context:

"She who from April dates her years,
Diamonds shall wear, lest bitter tears
For vain repentance flow."​
