June's Birthstone: The Pearl
Cultured or freshwater pearls are considered to offer the power of love, money, protection, and luck. Pearls are thought to give wisdom through experience, to quicken the laws of karma and to cement engagements and love relationships. They are thought to keep children safe.
Chinese myths tell of pearls falling from the sky when dragons fought. Ancient legend says pearls were thought to be the tears of the gods and the Greeks believed that wearing pearls would promote a happy marriage and prevent newlywed women from crying.
