The main June birthstone is the Pearl associated with purity, fidelity and integrity and pearls are often worn by brides on their wedding day.

Pearls are the only organic birthstone, forming inside mollusks around foreign particles. Pearls come in many colors depending on the type of freshwater or seawater mollusk that produces them. Cultured pearls are simply farmed pearls where a foreign particle has been manually introduced into the mollusk.
Moonstone is a gemstone that allows light to shimmer across its surface, producing an effect similar to the sheen of the full moon. Moonstone color can vary from transparent, through white, green, yellow-brown, grey to almost black and the shimmering effect can be blue, silver or white. Most moonstone will have some inclusions but the fewer the better, so as not to interfere with the light scattering properties.
Alexandrite is a rare purplish gemstone with an amazing color changing property; reflecting green-blue in daylight to pink-red in low light. Alexandrite is named after the Czar Alexander II when it was discovered in the Ural Mountains of Russia in the 1800's, although those deposits are now depleted. Due to its rarity, most alexandrite in jewelry is lab created, having the exact same chemical and light changing properties as natural alexandrite and just as beautiful.
