How exactly do pearls, June's birthstone, form in nature?

Pearls are formed when a tiny bit of sand or material gets trapped inside an oyster. The oyster produces a “nacre” as a defense mechanism that coats the intruder, layer after layer. A pearl is formed naturally in only 1 in every 10,000 oysters. 

Freshwater pearls can take between 1 and 6 years to form; whereas saltwater may take between 5 and 20 years. The longer a pearl stays in the shell, the more nacre that forms and the larger the pearl. Freshwater pearls can grow to be just as big as saltwater pearls, but they take less time to develop because the layers of nacre are not as compact as those surrounding the saltwater pearl.

Jacqueline Onassis Kennedy was well-known for her affinity with June's birthstone, pearl, and to many, she was the epitome of elegance!

Known for her sophisticated sense of style, her love for colorful and fashion-forward attire, pearls were the perfect way to compliment her vibrant but chic fashion sense with a kiss of old-world class and charm. There was a kind of mystique about her, a subtle allure and enchantment that seemed mirrored in the lustrous pearls that captured the collective imagination of a nation.

Did you know June has a 3RD birthstone?! June is one of only two months that has three birthstones associated with it. We've highlighted pearl and alexandrite, two of June's birthstones; the third is MOONSTONE!

June’s third birthstone, moonstone, was named by the Roman natural historian Pliny, who wrote that moonstone’s shimmery appearance shifted with the phases of the moon. As its name implies, moonstone is closely associated with lunar mystery and magic. Its calming, balancing energies can supposedly attune to natural biological rhythms. Also known as the Traveler’s Stone, it’s believed to protect travelers at night. #moonstone #junebirthstones

June's popular alternate birthstone, Alexandrite, is one of the most interesting and rare gem varieties in the world!

Alexandrite is a relatively modern gemstone, discovered in Russia in 1831. What makes alexandrite such a unique gemstone: It has a chameleon-like ability to change colors, and has been described as an “emerald by day, ruby by night.” It is a lovely green in both daylight and fluorescent light; it changes color to a purplish red in incandescent light!

What's the secret to 75 years of marriage? Emily and Jack Mascola of Toms River answer that question. 

The couple tied the knot May 9th, 1943, as Jack enjoyed “a couple of days off” from the Army in the middle of World War II. That knot remains tied some 14 presidents, seven popes and three generations later. There are two children, six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. 

Emily and Jack Mascola are 97 and 99 years old, and they still hold hands. They live on their own, too. Jack explains that finding common ground was their ultimate secret to a successful marriage: “What I tried to do, when my brain was working, was to find areas we had in agreement, and usually the pointed issues get lost by the wayside.”
