Moonstone

Moonstone is another June birthstone and this is one is perhaps a little underappreciated. Moonstone is composed of the mineral feldspar. The thin layers of this mineral scatter the light and create a beautiful shimmery effect and a milky glow. The best quality moonstones are transparent with a blue shimmer, but that doesn't mean the other calls aren't just as beautiful!

Alexandrite

Alexandrite is a gemstone that is often described as “emerald by day, ruby by night” because the stone changes from a bluish green in the light to a purplish red when the light is dimmed. This gemstone is relatively new as it was only discovered in 1834. But the chameleon like color made it popular quickly! It's a beautiful stone that would make a lovely gift, even if it's not you're not lucky enough to be able to call it your birthstone!
