 Birthstone Gemsonas

my friend zeshka requested I do zodiac magical girls or birthstone gemsonas and I thought it was such a great idea! 

I tried making gemsonas based off the 12 birthstones and also included details in their designs that echo the 12 birth flowers as well.

Blue tourmaline (also known as Indicolite) oval weighing 3.13cts from the Malapa mine, Tanzania. The stone is perfectly fashioned and the deep slightly greenish blue color is exceptional.

Tourmaline is a gemstone noted for the large and unsurpassed range of colors in which it occurs, but blue is one of the rarest and most valuable color sought by collectors and connoisseurs throughout the world. Color of Indicolite (tourmaline) can vary from a light to a deep blue, but pure blue is extremely rare. A teal or blue-green color is most common color of Indicolite. Like most tourmaline, it is strongly pleochroic, meaning it shows different hues when viewed from different directions.

Updated version of my gemsona

As much as Aquamarine is my favorite gem, I decided to change it to Tourmaline, since it is my birthstone (the other one is Opal, but she’s already canon). It’s a good thing tourmalines come in different colors, so I got to keep the same color palette. 

She would be a pretty neutral gem, but I guess she’s more likely to team with the Crystal Gems than with the other gems.

Btw, the dot on her forehead is not supposed to be a bindi, or something similar. She’s just based on me (more like that’s me if I were a SU character), and I have a dark spot there. Just to make it clear and avoid confusion.

mariheal, you should be Aquamarine… It’s March’s birthstone
