June Birthstone Color - Light Purple
The June birthstone color of light purple comes from one of the official birthstones for June - Alexandrite. Alexandrite is a rare variety of gem-quality chrysoberyl which has a fascinating color change from blue-green in daylight to red-purple in artificial light.
The other June birthstones are Pearl and Moonstone. Pearls come in many colors depending on the type of freshwater or seawater mollusk that produced them. Moonstone color can vary from transparent, through white, green, yellow-brown, grey to almost black with a shimmering effect of blue, silver or white.
June birthstone jewelry set with the more valuable Alexandrite gemstone is a special gift for a milestone birthday. 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.
Otherwise birthstone jewelry set with Pearls, Moonstone or light purple crystals make a lovely, meaningful gift for any June birthday.
