What is the June Birthstone?

The June Birthstone, Moonstone was named by the Roman natural historian Pliny who wrote about the shimmery appearance of moonstones that shifts with the phases of the moon. It is composed of feldspar that birthed the term adularescence, which refers to the billowy effect and milky glow that looks like the moonlight on water!

Moonstone gemstones come in a range of colours spanning yellow, green, blue, grey, peach, and pink. It is called the rainbow moonstone, showing an attractive blue or multicoloured adularescence sheen.
