A birth stone is a gemstone or gem, also called a precious or semi-precious stone. Gemstones are chemical compositions of mineral, which in cut and polished forms, are used to make jewelry and rings by zodiac signs. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals, like diamonds are very hard with hardnesses of 8-10 on the Mohs scale.
Early civilizations, such as those in India and Nepal have attributed gemstones with magical properties and signs of the zodiac. Over time, astrologers have assigned gems of certain colors to the twelve signs of the zodiac to help people influence the planets in their favors. The stones are also worn by people based on their dates of birth.
Spadikam or Sphatik (Quartz) also spelled as Spadikam is the mineral in the Earth's continental crust, after feldspar. It comprises one part silicon and two parts oxygen. Quartz belongs to the trigonal crystal system. The ideal crystal shape is a six-sided prism terminating with six-sided pyramids at each end.
Sphatikam is the semi-precious gemstone. There are many different varieties of sphatikam. High quality quartz crystals are single-crystal silica with optical or electronic properties that make them suitable for hardstone carvings. The Hindu temples in South India use this semi-precious mineral for making Shiva Lingams. Sphatikam beads are made from translucent rose quartz and polished as beads. Each bead is about ten millimeters in diameter. It is a good conductor of heat. Hence people wear sphatikam jewelry (mala) to keep their body cool. Some other people claim that these beads have healing properties.
