The two zodiac signs for June are Gemini and Cancer. Gemini birthdays fall between May 21st through June 20th. As you learned in our Taurus Zodiac & May Birthstone blog, Geminis are represented by the “twin” symbol. The gemini is always excited to try new things and is very fluid in their thoughts. They are known to be very playful and intellectually curious, and are the social butterflies of the zodiac group. Cancer birthdays fall between June 21st through July 22nd. Cancer’s may come off a bit standoffish at first, but once you get to know them, they are a loyal and life long friend. They are sympathetic and attached to the people they keep close.
June’s birthstone is the Alexandrite, a rare variety of the mineral chrysoberyl that changes color in different lighting. It has been described as the “emerald by day, ruby by night,” with a vivid green color in the daylight to an intense red to purplish red in incandescent light. Alexandrite was first discovered in Russia’s Ural Mountains in 1803 and instantly became popular because the red and green hues mimicked Russia’s military colors. With a hardness of 8.5 on the Mohs scale, alexandrite is softer than sapphire and garnet, but due to its scarcity, alexandrite can be more valuable than most gemstones, including rubies and diamonds.
