June Birthday Fun Facts

June Birth Stone: Alexandrite and Pearl

Did you know that June actually has 2 birth stones?! Read on for some fun facts and history about the two stunning June birth stones – the alexandrite and the pearl.

Green in some forms of light and red in others, the Alexandrite stone is one of the most unique and beloved stones in existence. Named after the Russian Czar Alexander II in reference to the fact that the stone’s changing colors mirrored that of the Russian flag, Alexandrite was first discovered in the 1830s in the Ural Mountains of Russia.

The Pearl, on the other hand, is a more common but equally stunning stone, known in history as the “Queen of Gems.” The pearl has had a long history almost as rich as the gem is beautiful. From adorning the clothing of Queens and Pharaohs to being used as symbols of wealth and power, pearls continue to this day to be a strongly sought-after stone.

June Birth Flower: Rose

Like the pearl, the Rose is a historically rich and sought-after entity.  Ranging in colors from white to yellow to red, roses are one of the most popular “favorite” flower of women worldwide.  If you plan on surprising your June birthday honoree with a stunning bouquet of roses, be sure to have them check out our Rose Care and Handling guide for optimal life and longevity!

June Zodiac Signs: Gemini, Cancer

Those born in the month of June fall under one of the two astrological signs – Gemini (May 21-June 21) or Cancer (June 22-July 22). Extremely sociable and naturally inquisitive, there’s rarely a dull moment when someone is born under Gemini the twins. While those born under Cancer the crab are not always the most outgoing bunch, their caring and nurturing personalities make them great lifetime friends and companions.
