When it comes to the birthstone for June, many people immediately think of pearls. While pearls are indeed a classic choice, there's another gem that shares the spotlight with them—moonstone. We're going to take a closer look at its history, significance, and why it's a fantastic choice for June birthdays.
It’s a captivating gem known for its iridescent play of colours. This unique optical effect, known as adularescence, gives moonstone its otherworldly appearance. This gives it a mysterious, glowing look.
The history of moonstone is steeped in legends and lore. Ancient civilisations, including the Romans and Greeks, believed that moonstone was formed from solidified moonlight. It was thought to bring good fortune and protection to its wearer. It has this history across the world too. In India, moonstone is considered sacred and is believed to be a stone of love and passion.
Moonstone is often associated with feminine energy, intuition, and emotional balance. It's believed to enhance one's intuition and provide insight into the future, making it a popular choice for those seeking guidance and wisdom. Moonstone is also considered a symbol of love and is often used in engagement rings.
