Why Does June Have So Many Birthstones?

Have you ever wondered why the June birthstone has so many gemstones associated with it? Birthstones are the gemstones related to each of the twelve months of the year, and their history goes as far back as the biblical age. Some months have multiple gemstones linked to them because many of the ancient stones have become a rarity and are difficult to source in the modern day. Over time, June birthstones have ranged from Agate, Chalcedony and Turquoise to Pearl, Moonstone and Alexandrite. Alexandrite, which is not easily obtainable, has now been replaced by the beautiful Lilac Amethyst which shares its purple hue. Said to bring good luck to those who wear them, giving these June birthstones as gifts has become popular. Turn to John Atencio for distinctive June birthstone jewelry made with Lilac Amethyst, Pearl and Turquoise.
