Birthstone for June

Alexandrite, Moonstone (Secondary)

  The  pearl  is a classic. It exudes sophistication and is the only type of stone that doesn't need to be cut and polished. Because pearls are iridescent, they complement any type of skin tone well. A beautiful pearl necklace or earrings would be the perfect gift for a June birthday.

What does the pearl represent?  The pearl represents purity, innocence and imagination. Each color pearl has a different meaning:
  • Blue signifies love
  • Black or gold symbolize prosperity
  • Pink symbolizes good fortune
  • Brown symbolizes harmony and practicality
  • White represents beauty, purity and new beginnings
The A lexandrite  is an extremely rare gem. It's known for its impressive color change from blue in daylight to purple at night and retails for about $10,000 (for a one carat!). For this reason, most of these gems are found only in museums.
What does the Alexandrite represent? The Alexandrite represents l uck, good fortune and love. It is said to encourage romance and enhance one's emotional well-being.
The  moonstone  acquired its name from Roman historian Pliny, who noted that the appearance shifted with the phases of the moon. It has a bluish tone but can vary in colors, like yellow, gray, peach, green and even pink. The bluer the stone, the higher the value. They are mainly found in India, Madagascar, the United States and parts of Australia. Because of its calming effects, the moonstone is used to treat insomnia and sleepwalking.
What does the moonstone represent? Moonstones represent h ope, calmness and abundance. People acquire moonstones for protection and it is associated with all types of love.
