Junes Birthstone's: Pearl, Alexandrite and Moonstone, Gemini: May 21 – June 21

Gemini: Pearl May 21 – June 21

Inside the closed-shell is an irritating piece of sand inside an oyster. Out of a nuisance hidden in that shell, a wonderful creation is taking place, where a sphere of a single Pearl is being formed a pure beauty. When the Twin, Gemini wears pearls, the ease at being two people in one fills you with a sense of calm.

June is one of only two months that has three birthstones associated with it. The lucky people born in June have three choices of gemstones. Pearl, Alexandrite and Moonstone.
Alexandrite is a very rare and expensive gemstone to buy. I do not keep this in my collection of gemstones. But I can source this gemstone for you. You will need to put down a large deposit for this as it’s very expensive. The gemstone price also depends upon the size and the weight.

Pearls, natural or cultured, are formed when a mollusc produces layers of nacre around some type of irritant inside its shell. In natural pearls, the irritant may be another organism from the water. In cultured pearls, a mother-of-pearl bead or a piece of tissue is inserted (by man) into the mollusc to start the process.

For both, the quality of the nacre dictates the quality of the lustre, or shine of the pearl, which is very important to its beauty and its value. The surface of the pearl should be smooth and free of marks while the overall shape could be round, oval, pear-shaped, or even misshapen. Misshapen pearls are called baroque pearls.

Cultured Pearls
Cultured pearls are grown in pearl farms. The molluscs are raised until they are old enough to accept the mother-of-pearl bead nucleus. A technician implants the bead, then the molluscs produce nacre around the bead and then the molluscs are returned to the water and cared for while the pearl forms.

Pearls can be found in saltwater and in freshwater. There are also different types of molluscs that produce very different looking pearls.

Saltwater Pearls
Saltwater pearls include the Akoya cultured pearls grown in Japanese and Chinese waters. They range in size from 2mm (tiny) to 10mm (rare) and are usually white or cream in colour and round in shape.
Tahitian pearls are interestingly not exclusively from Tahiti – they’re grown in several of the islands of French Polynesia, including Tahiti. Their typical sizes range from 8mm to 16mm. These naturally coloured pearls are collectively called black pearls, but their colours include grey, blue, green, and purple.

Freshwater Pearls
These pearls are grown in freshwater lakes, rivers, and ponds, predominately in China. Although many are white and resemble the Akoya cultured pearls in shape and size, they can also be produced in various shapes and in an array of pastel colour.
