Emerald: May Birthstone
As the birthstone for May, the emerald is believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth. Emerald, derived from the word “smaragdus,” means, quite literally, “green” in Greek. It was known that Emerald was a favorite gem of Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt.The ancients associated Emerald with the Greek goddess Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, and was said to protect lovers from unfaithfulness. It was believed that wearing an Emerald would improve one’s memory and intelligence, enabling one to think clearly about the past, present, and future. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love.
