June Birthstone

Pearl, the June birthstone, got popularized by the Hindus, Persians and Egyptians who were the first to identify its significance. Further, this fondness tempted Romans too who made it an icon of appreciation and their liking towards this Pearl as a gemstone got so bizarre they had pearls to shimmer every type of property they owned. There is historic relevance about Julius Caesar who had a huge assortment of pearls and was passionate about them. Gem obsessed women would put on their pearl engraved ornaments twenty four hours. As a result, this June birthstone too has good number of legends associated to it and how fanatics conserved the gem. 

History enthusiasts don’t need to be reminded that a particular era in European history has been referred to as Pearl Age given the fact that every trend in that period looked obsessed with pearls. It was the crusaders who brought pearls back from Orient resulting in getting highly valued in Europe. But being expensive, they were held only by the high class men & women. Besides, relevance of pearls can also be found in Greek & Roman mythologies as Aphrodite and Venus, their love goddesses, preserved pearls and it is not strange that the moon goddess Diana got allured with its luminosity. 

One of the rarest peculiarities about pearl is that you don’t have to cut or carve it, or even polish it. In fact, this June birthstone forms by the combination of shellfishes and is quite organic. So there is no question of this being a stone, as other gemstones do. A pearl grows inside the shell and can be worn immediately as you take it out from the shell. Therefore, purity and modesty come naturally with it. In addition, a wearer of pearl may expect to be blessed with all the best things in life, successfully overcoming challenges, strengthening of bonds of friendship and love, and winning over evil. A pearl wearer can also reduce irritation, build-up a powerful heart, own a strong memory and cure blood related diseases. 

Another gem known as a June Birthstone is alexandrite. This gemstone can be identified as a gem that can exhibit dual colours in the day and night times. You can observe it emerging green hue in day and unfolding its ruby shade as the night takes over. Alexandrite is said to have got this name in the fourth decade of 19th Century when it got discovered exactly on the day that was Alexander II’s birthday.
