June: Alexandrite


Your horoscope can often subscribe to plenty of personal characteristics. For some, it can provide insight as to their inner selves and subconscious needs and wants. For others, it’s a way to rationalize sending that risky text message, or buying a brand new couch.

However, with all the waxing poetic to be had in Capricorn moons and Leo suns, some would prefer a more concrete, tangible method of finding themselves.

Some would say Birthstones are the literal crystallization of the months in a year. Originating from the bible, In Exodus 28, Moses creates a special breastplate for Aaron, the High Priest of the Hebrews. Specifically, the breastplate was to contain twelve precious gemstones, representing the twelve tribes of Israel. These twelve stones were later assigned to the Zodiac, and as a result, became symbolic for all twelve months, respectively.

You could name your zodiac and horoscope, and the features that come with the assignment, but every birthstone possesses unique traits and personality themselves. Have you ever asked yourself if you’re as steadfast as a ruby? Or as richly reflective as a diamond? Let’s find out!

How similar are you to your birthstone?

Alexandrite could be called controversial, due to its unconventional nature, and troublesome origins, but that only seems to add to the allure. Discovered in Imperial Russia in 1830, it was initially mistaken for Emerald. However, Alexandrite’s transformative nature quickly debunked that impression, as it has the unique ability to change colour based on light exposure, appearing green in natural light, and red in artificial light. This phenomenon boosted demand for the novel stone, and soon, the Russian mines were depleted, leaving only those in Brazil, Sri Lanka, and East Africa.

Alexandrite is thought to represent balance, intellect, and above all, luck. Because of its unique beauty, and startling features and shades- seen here in these 1.03 Carat TW Alexandrite & Diamond Dangle Earrings in 18K White & Yellow Gold- it is a highly sought after stone, and has become even rarer than Diamonds.

If your birthstone is Alexandrite, you are a multifaceted person. You are emotional and based on the happenings around you, your mindset can switch dramatically. This is one of your super powers; your psychological multitasking, simultaneously processing and acting appropriately. For this reason, those who know you seek you out for your support or feedback. You are unashamed to give your full opinion, true and unfiltered, and your advice is best followed. You are also very prone to green lights when driving.
