These where (and still are): Garnet, Aquamarine, Sapphire, Pearl, Amethyst, Opal, Topaz, Emerald, Peridot, Citrine, Diamond and Ruby. Then by studying the attributes of these gem stones they assigned each one of them to a Chinese Horoscope sign. These gem stones would protect and bring luck to the possessor.
