As shown in the photo above, each carries a unique blue tone making it a perfect birthstone for December winters. 

TURQUOISE

Turquoise is among the oldest known gemstones, treasured by both the pharaohs of Egypt and the Native Americans. It is currently a very popular blue gemstone, available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and tones of blue, but rarely in pure blue. Tanzanite almost always displays its signature overtones of purple. Tanzanite also comes in extremely rare and highly collectible fancy colors: golden, green, lilac and peacock (blue and green).
