ZODIAC:  Taurus, Gemini


Throughout history – from Cleopatra to Inca Emperors – emeralds have enchanted royalty. As the gem of spring, emerald is the perfect choice as the birthstone for the month of May. 1  It’s also the gem of the twentieth and thirty-fifth wedding anniversaries.

The May birthstone is perfectly suited to the celebration of life blooming everywhere. Given the rich green hues of emerald, it is natural people fall under its spell.

In ancient lore Emeralds were considered to be a gift from Thoth, the ancient god of wisdom. They are known to be a symbol of the strong bond of love and of faithful love. Emeralds are also known to be a stone of intuition, associated with sight and to be the revealer of future events and truths.2

The gemstone Emerald stimulates the heart chakra, having a healing effect on the emotions as well as the physical heart. It ensures physical, emotional and mental equilibrium, bringing harmony to all areas of one’s life.3

Emeralds can be found in Colombia, Brazil, Africa, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Colombia has been the source of the finest emeralds for more than 500 years, and Colombian emeralds are the standard by which all others are measured. Zambia is also a major source, and mines in the Ndola Rural Restricted Area are known for producing emeralds that are bluish green and darker in tone.4

Following your heart - to the Emerald City of OZ or to the destination of your dreams - let your heart chakra and the enchanting healing power of the colour green guide you.
