Every birth month has a stone. If you were born in June, your birthstone is the pearl, which is not actually a stone, but gorgeous nonetheless. The origin of the birthstone is dated back as far as the breastplate of Aaron from the Bible. The breastplate featured twelve gemstones, all representing the twelve tribes of Israel. The current list of gemstones by birthday dates to 1912.
The June birthstone offers a lot of flexibility in comparison to the other months because it is organic instead of being found in the earth. Pearls are formed when an oyster builds up layers of matter around a single grain of sand. Since pearls can be farmed, you can find them in many colors and sizes. Pearls are much more unique in comparison to the diamonds, rubies and peridot of other birth months. You’re special because you have the pearl!
The Meaning of the Pearl
The pearl is believed to contain healing powers, and if you wear the one of your birth month, these powers will be yours. It is said that the pearl has calming powers and can help to aid in loyalty, truth, charity, and purity for those who wear it.Pearls have an organic origin because they are not found within the earth as most gemstones are. Instead, they are found within various species of clams and oysters. Most of pearls are culture-raised and come in various colors. You can find pearls that are white, black, cream and even yellow, green, and blue. They can be found all over the world, adding to some of the popularity of the pearl.
