Mother of Pearls: The June Birthstone

The only gemstone to be created from living creatures (in the mantle of a shelled mollusk), pearls are June’s birthstone. Even if the pearl isn’t your birthstone, this jewel is a popular choice for all. These sea jewels are indigenous to the waters surrounding Japan and China and come in a wide range of shades, from creamy white to dark black. While naturally occurring pearls happen on their own in nature, cultured and farmed pearls are man made but certainly no less real.
