In China, the New Year is celebrated during the second new moon after the winter solstice. Every twelve months pass under the auspices of one of the twelve animals, which are symbols of each newborn.

The first animal of the Chinese calendar is the Green Wooden Rat.

A universal option is considered a brooch.
Fire Rat. For them, it is valuable Red Garnet. It allows them not to fade away to their passionate optimism and competently use a huge reserve of forces. Otherwise, it may not be enough for all the accomplishments, which dozens of representatives of this element usually have. Suitable varieties of pomegranate: Pyrope and Almandine. Care should be taken to choose jewelry with this mineral, as it is poorly compatible with some gemstones, such as Emerald and Moonstone.
Earth Rat. Their best friend is Yellow Sapphire. The most careful type of this zodiac sign. They need a stone that can ignite the fire of passion, which overcomes excessive shyness in some moments.

Sapphire acts as an excellent assistant in this matter, as it develops the instinct, allows you to see the insincerity of others. It is recommended to wear earrings with this stone, because the chakras of blue shades are located in the head and neck.
