June Birthstones

June Birthstones

June is a month of renewal and new beginnings, falling in the spring, it is a time of new growth and tuning into the cycles of the earth. The birthstones associated with June also bring with them this same energy.

Alexandrite is the traditional birthstone for June, It is very rare and highly desirable due to its ability to change colour depending on the light. Alexandrite can help bring about changes and help you go with the flow as you switch between the roles you have in life. It is fabulous for sparking creativity and has a truly magical feel.

The rarity of alexandrite means that it can come with a very high price tag. Luckily, there are two other options that are easier on the wallet, but carry wonderful energy of their own.

The second option for June is pearl. Pearls are considered organic gemstones. Organic gemstones include such gems as pearls, amber and ammolite, are created by organic material that has been transformed into a gem. Pearls hold the calming energy of the ocean. They are fantastic for new beginnings and new adventures. Pearls can also bring good luck and protection.

The third most common option for June birthstones is moonstone. Moonstone is a type of feldspar related to labradorite, and it has the shine and flash of labradorite. Moonstone comes in several categories. Natural moonstone can be a variety of colours from milky white to peach to grey. It has shine but not flash. Natural moonstone is calming and helps the wearer connect with the cycles of the earth. If you are having trouble going with the flow of life and its ups and downs natural moonstone is a great choice. Rainbow moonstone is white or clear with black accents. It gets its name from the flashes of blue that can be seen when the light hits the crystal at the right angle. Rainbow moonstone is fantastic for creativity and staying in the  flow of the universe. All kinds of moonstone are good for tapping into feminine energy and for alleviating problems with menstrual cycles.
