The June birthstone is one of the rarest gemstones in the world that is formed by a variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. It was first discovered in the Ural mountain, Russia in the year 1830 and was named after Russian emperor Alexander II in 1834.

Alexandrites can only be found in a few places in the world – Brazil, Madagascar, Russia and Sri Lanka. The reason why Alexandrites are rare is because of their colour that changes in different lighting. It usually appears green in daylight and red in incandescent light.
