Happy Birthday May Babies If you were lucky enough to be born during the month of May, you claim emerald as your birthstone. It’s the envy of all other gemstones with its many shades of green. Emerald green is a color that is synonymous with prosperity, as well as rebirth and renewal. It’s the color of spring, a time when brown grass begins to turn lush and trees and flowers begin their blooms of glory. It’s no wonder that emerald represents a rebirth of spirit, used as a symbol of happiness and pure love. The Queen of Gems Emerald was the favorite stone of Cleopatra, so beloved that she claimed all ancient Egyptian emerald mines as her own personal possession. Today the emerald’s beauty and mystery are enjoyed by all those who appreciate its deep green hues, especially when placed into white gold, platinum or palladium. Emerald is one of the most popular gemstones for earrings and bracelets, especially when used with diamonds, either as halos or accents. In addition, the emerald has become a breathtaking addition to diamond engagement rings, either as the center stone or as lovely accents. Emerald – A Stone of Abundant Love From a metaphysical standpoint, the emerald crystal is used to help remove negativity. It is believed to replace negative thoughts with positive actions that help strengthen an individual’s resolve to overcome problems and negative thoughts. Emitting the rays of nature itself, the green emerald is believed to contain the purest form of natural energy. Derived from the Greek word for ,emerald encourages respect for all creation, inspiring thoughts of unconditional love, compassion, kindness and reassurance. It’s Very Easy Being Green Although a famous frog puppet named Kermit sings “it’s not easy being green,” we beg to differ. Being green with envy is more in keeping with emerald since this May birthstone, and precious gemstone, represents hope and love. Of course, those born any month of the year can still claim emerald as their own for its positivity and beauty. As a stone of divine love or a gem beloved for its fresh green hues, Emerald makes a positive addition to any jewelry collection.
