Gemstone Spotlight: Emerald

Posted on

Emerald: Favored by royalty for centuries (emeralds were a favorite of Cleopatra’s), the history of emerald mining dates back to 3000 BC near the Red Sea. 

Emeralds legendary green hue resonates with nature energy. They are traditionally the gem of Venus and symbolic of fertility, abundance, health and rebirth. For this reason, many ancient mummies were buried with the stone. As the 20th and 35th anniversary stone, it’s said to bestow love, wisdom, peace and fortune on its wearer. Emerald is the birthstone for May. 

Emeralds are in the Beryl family, along with Aquamarine, Morganite and others. They are known for being a relatively fragile stone, with many possible inclusions and fractures. Because of this, large emeralds are very rare.
This is a 15+ carat Columbian Emerald. It was such a rush to hold this stone!
