PearlIf you were born in June, you have THREE beautiful birthstones! Pearl, Moonstone and Alexandrite are all officially the birthstones of the month of June. This allows June babies to choose from a wide variety of colors and prices!
Moonstones have a hardness of a 6-6.5 on the Moh's Scale of Hardness. Jewelry made with Moonstone gemstones require extra care and maintenance. High heat and sudden temperature changes can cause breaks in your Moonstone.
Cleaning your Moonstone with warm, soapy water is the only cleaning type recommended.

Discovered in Russia in the early 1800s, Alexandrite is named after Tsar Alexander II. This rare and unique and gemstone is prized for its chameleon‐like qualities and stunning colors, which appear to change in response to the light.
Alexandrite has a Moh's Hardness of 8-8.5, making this gemstone great for everyday daily wear. Alexandrite has a wide color range from greenish blue in sunlight/daylight, to reddish purple in artificial light. The more noticeable the change in color, the more valuable the gemstone is.
For cleaning, we recommend using warm soapy water and dry with a soft, lint‐free cloth. You may use a steam or ultrasonic cleaner if your stone doesn't have any great fractures. Always store your alexandrite jewelry separately, as it could scratch or chip other jewelry with a low hardness rating.
