We've reached June's birthstones - Pearl and Moonstone.
Two magical stones that will probably have a full story to tell
The pearl is created in the oyster when a foreign body penetrates it and it grows layers of pearly material around it.
In the past, they were rare-pulled out from the sea with intricate and dangerous clarity and of course they were favored by nobility and kings.
Today the pearls are raised in oysters in fresh or salty water, in a delicate process that does not harm the shell of the oyster.
The beginning of the increase in aquaculture was in China in the 12th century.
Truthfulness, sincerity, peace, clearing all the negative - like immersion in the spring.
Strengthens the soul and pearl powder heals wounds ...
