Here's a very good Wikipedia article on birthstones. I believe it includes the entire list in order.

I just saw this today & am writing even though I'm weeks late. The December birthstone is either Turquoise or Blue Zircon. Blue topaz is definitely not the correct birthstone for December. This is a cop-out that has been foisted on the public by the department stores. It started about 20-25 years ago, and being a December baby, I find it most annoying.

The Blue Zircon is a lovely blue-green stone, the same color as most Turquoise, but clear. I love both & have one of each in my jewelry collection. I wouldn't have a blue topaz for free - it's just not the correct birthstone for December. Blue Zircons are a little harder to get, but well worth it. They're not outrageously expensive either.
