JUNE BIRTHSTONES

June is the sixth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar and the fourth month of the ancient Roman calendar.

In June we celebrate Litha and the Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year and the zenith of solar power across the Earth. This is a time of the wild and fertile Green Man - the flourishing Oak God and the manifestation of growth and maturity. It is a time of perfection, the mystical marriage of earth and heaven. And yet it is also a time of sadness, because it marks the point at which the days will start to shorten again and when the sun is at its brightest, it casts the deepest shadows.

Traditional birthstone: Pearl / Mother of Pearl
Modern birthstones: Agate, Moonstone, Opal, Opalite, Orange Calcite
