June Birthstone is Pearl.
Those born in June are lucky to have not just one, but three birthstones to choose from: Pearl, Alexandrite & Moonstone
The word Pearl is derived from the Latin word ‘pirum’, which is the shape many pearls take on naturally when they grow.
Freshwater Pearls are made of a living organism called a mollusk.
The external surface of a Freshwater Pearl is made up of many layers of an organic substance secreted by Mollusks called Nacre.
Pearls are thought by some to have calming properties and to symbolise charity, truth, purity, integrity and loyalty.
Pearls are a traditional gift for many special anniversaries, including the 1st, 3rd, 12th, and 30th.
They are also a traditional 16th birthday gift for girls.
