The final of the three June birthstones, Alexandrite, is a blue/green colored stone in fluorescent light or daylight and turns to a reddish/purple shade in incandescent or candlelight. It's thought that this stone can restore the owner's energy levels and help garner self-respect and appreciation from others. It's also said the Alexandrite can help balance emotional states, enhance confidence, and bring about necessary changes to one's life.
Alexandrite Metaphysical Properties
As discussed, alexandrite is said to balance emotional states, increase self-esteem, provide confidence, and bring change. It can also help bring success and happiness to the owner, as well as intense feelings of sensuality and love.
This rare gem's regenerative powers have been highly regarded since ancient times. Alexandrite can enhance the rebirth of both the outer and inner self, thus providing an incentive to speed up the changes in the owner's life by producing qualities of creativity, expansiveness, and even awareness within the realm of manifestations.
Choosing Between Moonstone, Pearl, or Alexandrite
Choosing between moonstone, pearl, and alexandrite can be difficult. These three gemstones are unique and beautiful in their own ways. So, the choice is going to come down to personal preference and budget. In terms of budget, moonstone and pearls are much more affordable than alexandrite.
However, when it comes to personal preference, everyone's taste is different. For instance, one person may prefer an opaque moonstone while another prefers black Tahitian pearls. Moonstone and alexandrite are available in a variety of colors and clarity. The deeper the colors and clearer the stone, the higher the price. Pearls are available in just about any color, so they are very versatile, though white is the most common.
Regardless of the choice, you can't go wrong with any of June's birthstones. And with Nina's moonstone reversible huggies, you can get two earrings in one!
