June is a month blessed with not one, but three beautiful birthstones, each with its own unique charm and allure. While pearls have long been associated with this month, moonstones and alexandrites also claim their place among June's celebrated gemstones.
Moonstones: Ethereal Beauty and Mystical Appeal
Moonstones are gemstones that possess a moonlit glow. The scientific name for this mystical wonder is Adularescence: a metallic iridescence originating from below a stone’s surface, occurring when light reflects between the mineral’s layers. This optical phenomenon creates a shimmering effect on the surface, resembling the play of moonlight on water.
Known for their ethereal beauty, moonstones are rumoured to enhance intuition, promote emotional balance, and bring good fortune. Some even believe that the moonstone is forged with the magic of moonbeams.
Their colour ranges from milky white to shades of peach, grey, and blue. Moonstones are enchanting gems fit for fairy-like people born in June.
Alexandrites: Rare Colour-Changing Wonders:
Alexandrites are incredibly rare and prized for their remarkable colour-changing properties.
They exhibit a mesmerising phenomenon called pleochroism, where their hues shift from green in daylight or fluorescent light to red or purplish-red in incandescent light. This unique characteristic symbolises change and transformation.
Discovered in Russia and named after Tsar Alexander II, alexandrites are now found in various parts of the world. Their scarcity and mesmerising colours make them highly sought after by gemstone collectors and connoisseurs.
Along with the pearl, June’s birthstones are nothing short of magical. They’re unique, eye-catching and even look beautiful together.
