June - Pearl, Alexandrite

The birthstones for June are Pearls and Alexandrite. 

The Pearl stone is most commonly found in a creamy white colour. The purest of pearls are the ones made in the wild and are quite rare. Gem-quality pearls are almost always nacreous and iridescent, like the interior of the shell that produces them. Pearls are very soft, around 2.5 and 4.5 on the Mohs scale, this makes them very delicate and sensitive. Pearls are smooth and beautiful in their truest natural form! The Alexandrite is a very rare and beautiful stone that in its truest glory changes colour.
