Birthstone Color Chart
Birthstone Colors are determined by the impurities or structural defects that cause the coloration of the gemstones. In gemstones, color consists of three components:

  • Hue - the first impression of the color of the gemstone
  • Tone - the lightness or darkness of color ranging from light to medium to dark
  • Saturation - the intensity of a gemstone's color which is measured from dull to strong to vivid

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) by which gemstone colors are graded are detailed in the following Birthstone Color Chart.
