"In love's calendar there is a special gem or stone for each month in the year : and what true lover should be without this necessary information?
January is represented by the garnet constancy.
February amethyst sincerity.
March bloodstone courage.
April diamond innocense.
May emerald success in love.
June agate long life.
July chameleon contented mind.
August sardonyx married happiness.
September chrysolite clearness of intellect.
October opal fortunate.
November topaz fidelity.
December turquoise prosperity."
