Emerald

Birthstone:
May’s birthstone, the exquisite, elegant Emerald!  In the Spring style stakes, literally lead the scene and keep it green for “nothing greens greener!!” (Pliny the Elder)  You know you are you are onto a birthstone winner when the Royals through the centuries continue to covet.  Oh and may we let you into a little secret?  Premium grade Emeralds are more valuable than Diamonds by the carat weight…………
 
Healing Properties:
The Emerald’s verdant hue energises and amplifies the great green tapestry of nature and life and is known as the “stone of successful love!”  Talk about “Romancing the Stone” and to give the Emerald its dues it enhances unconditional love, romance and joy!!  
Choose Love Go Green!
 
Potted History & Magical Myths:
In the first century AD, Pliny the Elder noted “no colour is more delightful in appearance. For although we enjoy looking at plants and leaves, we regard Emeralds with all the more pleasure because compared with them there is nothing that is more intensely green!”  Evocative stuff!  We have never been so keen to go green as this gemstone rocked the royals, from Cleopatra (who used it as Power and Rule) to the Inca King of Peru (the Conquistador Pizarro noted amongst his ill-gotten loot a crown encrusted with Emeralds), to Queen Victoria’s engagement ring and the Disco Di emerald choker worn by Princess Diana to the Duchess of Cambridge!  Emeralds get the global royal seal of approval! Fact!!
