What is the Birthstone for June?

June's birthstone is the pearl. While most pearls on the market are cultured, some are still natural. Pearls are created when a grain of sand or other particle gets stuck inside an oyster's shell. The oyster, in an effort to protect itself, secretes nacres, a composite material usually produced as an inner shell layer. Layers of this substance are what create the pearl bead.
