Three Gems of June

Did you know that there are three gems for June? June’s Natal stones are the three gems: Pearl, Moonstone, and Alexandrite.

My favorite of these gems is the Pearl. It was believed by the ancient Greeks to harden the tears of Aphrodite the Goddess of Love. The Pearl promotes Charity, Loyalty, and Purity to the wearer.

Moonstone is the second gem, which is believed to bring good fortune and Intuition. The ancient Romans believed that Diana, the goddess of the moon, has her image enclosed in the stone, bringing Health, Victory, and Wisdom to the wearer. The most powerful time to use a moonstone is at a full moon — giving Inner Growth and Strength to the wearer of the gem.

Alexandrite is the third June traditional gem, which is a very uncommon stone and is extremely expensive . The stone is named after Prince Alexander of Russia.  He became a Czar Alexander in 1855. It is a very lucky stone.

This Peridot and Pearl Bracelet would be a great gift for a June birthday.  Happy Birthday to all June Babies: David, Michelle, Joseph, Sherry, Anthony, Lynn, Josephine, and Theresa.
