Month: June Traditional Birthstones: Pearl, Alexandrite Modern Birthstones: Pearl, Moonstone, Alexandrite I would say Pearl and Alexandrite can only be classified as modern birthstones. Agate is the true traditional birthstones for June.

There is a very subtle difference between gemstones and birthstones. Birthstones are typically associated with a month, whereas gemstones are more generic.

Yes. There are many "generations" of birthstones so they must be changing somehow.

There are several birthstones for each month. It just depends on which source you choose to use your birthstone from. The Traditional birthstones are the birthstones assigned by the Tiffany Co. in 1870. The Modern list was made by the Jewelers of America association in 1912 and last updated in 2002.Here is a list of birthstones for April from different sources:Modern: DiamondTraditional: Diamond, SapphireMystical: OpalAyurvedic: Diamond

Birthstones are called such because they are gemstones that are assigned to represent what part of the year you are born. The actual gemstone varies from different charts and customs. Check out the website below that will explain in detail why we have birthstones today.
