Green is the color of spring, so what’s more convenience since the birthstone of May is a green emerald.
An emerald is one of the rarest gemstones and is believed to have many healing powers such as rebirth and recovery. The green color was said to rest, relieve and improve the eyesight. It is suppose to give you balance, faith, energy, a good fortune, youth and help you through the healing of heartbreak.
Back in time the emerald had many myths associated with it, one of them was that the stone could prevent epilepsy, stop bleeding, cure fever and protect the owner from any panic attack.
I like that a stone or a piece of jewellery has a symbol associated with it – it gives it a more personal touch and the possibility to give it your own symbolic meaning is priceless. It somehow becomes your lucky charm and a true believer of a helping hand through tough times. And non the less who wouldn’t mind, wearing such a beautiful green stone.
The emerald is one of my favorite stones and looks very beautiful in antique jewlleries as well as more modern and simples designs. The shape comes in various forms and the color and size can off course vary depending on the price. It is said to be one of the most expensive gemstones after the diamond – the deeper the color, the more valuable the stone.
