For Junes Birthstone Gemstones we celebrate 3 lovely Gems, Pearl, Moonstone and Alexandrite.
How lucky is the Gal to enjoy three Gemstones for her Birthday!!
These little beauties are also celebrated for the 1st, 12th and 30th Wedding Anniversary.
The origin of the name of Pearl is derived from the latin word “pirum” which means “pear” reflecting the shape of the gem. Pearls are unique as they are the only gems from living Sea Creatures and require no faceting or polishing to reveal their natural beauty.
In the early 1900s, the first successful commercial culturing of round saltwater Pearls began. Since the 1920s, cultured Pearls have almost completely replaced natural Pearls in the market.The natural colors of Pearls are white, pink, lilac, cream, grey, black and gold.
The Romans and Egyptians set a high value on Pearls consecrating them to the Goddess Isis and wearing them for her favors.
Pearl is said to be a lucky charm and brings the wearer good fortune and protection. It brings out affection, happiness, friendship, wealth, loyalty, love and generosity.

Also celebrated for the 13th Wedding Anniversary. Moonstone was given its name by the Roman Natural Historian Pliny, who wrote that moonstone’s appearance altered with the phases of the moon — a belief that held until well after the sixteenth century.
A phenomenal Gemstone, Moonstones show a floating play of light called adularescence and sometimes show either a multi rayed star or a cat’s eye.
It is considered a sacred stone in India, and are often displayed on a background of yellow (a sacred color) and are believed to encapsulate within the stone a spirit whose purpose is to bring good fortune. Moonstone is part of the family of minerals called feldspar, it occurs in many igneous and metamorphic rocks and comes in a variety of colors such as green, blue, peach, and champagne.
It is a good luck stone which promotes healing, luck, intuition and inspiration. It brings inner growth, strength and protection.

Also celebrated for the 45th and 55th Wedding Anniversary. This Gemstone was first discovered in Russia in 1831 during the reign of its namesake, Czar Alexander II, and is an extremely rare chrysoberyl with chameleon-like qualities. Alexandrite’s color is a lovely green in both daylight and fluorescent light and changes color to a purplish red in incandescent light.
Unfortunately as this Gemstone is quite hard to find I do not carry any of these Gems in at this time.
