December - Narcissus on Blue Topaz


Narcissus painted on blue Topaz, the birth flower and birth stone for December. 

This vivacious blue gemstone is known as the stone of clarity. The Blue Topaz meaning allows you to channel your inner wisdom and find the perfect pathways to successful opportunities. Its origins started with the Romans over two thousand years ago on the Topazios Island in the Red Sea. They believed anyone spotting this gemstone would give them strength on life’s daily adventures, protect them from enemies, and bring reconciliation.

Narcissi flowers are form the daffodil family, Daffodils and jonquils are among the first flowers to bloom in the spring, while Narcissus (paperwhites) flower in the winter. In the northern hemisphere, this places them squarely in December territory, making them an ideal birth flower for the twelfth month of the year They are seen to represent; creativity, inspiration, awareness, inner reflection, forgiveness and vitality. 

December babies are known to be generous and love to travel. They are also responsible, ambitious, and sensitive.
