PEARL & MOONSTONE - The Birthstones for Gemini and June


Pearls are one of the most loved gems of all time, they were seen as a symbol of modesty, chastity and purity and have also been associated with wealth and status for thousands of years - in 1917, Pierre Cartier traded a double strand of natural pearls for a mansion on Fifth Avenue in New York City!

Natural pearls are formed around an irritant in the bodies of certain mollusks (shellfish). In 1893 Kokichi Mikimoto successfully created a cultured pearl in Japan by delibertly adding an irritant to mollusks.

We are all familiar with cream and white pearls but they also come in black, grey, silver, pink, green, purple, or blue.

Pearls are not only associated with June and Gemini but also with third and thirtieth anniversaries.

When light falls on a moonstone it scatters in many directions, producing the phenomenon called adularescence - the light appears to billow across the gemstone, giving its surface a glowing appearance.
