The birthstone for Gemini is the Agate. 

A birthstone is a gemstone that represents a certain month of birth or in this case, a certain zodiac sign. Gemstones are precious or semi precious stones, also called jewels. These are pieces of mineral that are cut and polished in various shapes and are then used in different valuable jewelry or other objects. A gemstone is more valuable as it is harder to find or difficult to prepare.

Beside the aspect, most gemstones are also considered to have a certain influence on the wearer. They can attract a certain type of energy, enhance the personality of the wearer or protect him from negative influences. Some gemstones are also said to be beneficial in health matters.

The Agate is a symbol of softness, clarity and comfort. This birthstone sooths and calms the energetic Gemini and helps them find clarity of mind and orient their energy in making themselves and their ideas understood by other people.
