Is it at all confusing that Alexandrite- named after the Russian Tsar- should be chosen for those June born Geminis After all Gemini is the twin and Alexandrite has two completely different looks depending on the light.

A Stone for Every Month
Birthstones have had a long history in our culture. Originally there were twelve stones for the twelve months. But rather than wearing just one ring for your particular month of birth you wore a different ring each month. These rings were thought to give healing powers and keep the wearer in balance with the seasons. But today we have economized to only one birthstone for the whole year.
