(( I'm confused. The birthstone of August, which is the month I was born in, is the Peridot, which means that that is birthstone, BUT the Zodiac Sign of the Sapphire is Virgo, which I am (I was born on the 28). However, Peridot's Zodiac Sign is Leo. I'm not sure which one is my actual birthstone… ))

Zodiac doesn't overlap completely with months. If we are talking strictly birthstone, then yours is definitely Peridot, unless you are born on September.

I admire anyone who completes a full series of anything (Zodiacs, birthstones) that they set out to do on this site, as you are few and far between. By far my favorite of your images in this series is Peridot, and I haven't even finished looking at them! I stumbled upon your Aquamarine image (page one of a Google search for aquamarine birthstones! :D) and came in looking with no ability to resist, and love them all so far. I'll let you know when I reach the end whether my current favorite still stands, but for now I just love the gentleness, the greenery and the fairness of the young woman, the serenity of the whole image and its calmer demeanor among the other images that bring tongues of fire out of my screen at me, they are so filled with heat and energy (which I love as well! Only I am more partial to this more quiet energy, as that is the type of person I am). I am an amethyst, by the way. No one ever seems to get creative about changing February's stone, lol. Do you say anywhere which is your stone?
Love your work, keep it up!

Beautifully done! It makes me like my birthstone for once. All my life, I wished I had been born a different month because I didn't like my birthstone---but how expressive and beautiful this is, I'm glad I was born August 18th.
