Therapeutic Properties of Emerald


The role the color green in providing us a soothing and healing effect was well known for centuries. When we feel bad or need to recuperate, we go to countryside and take walks through the park among the lush green meadows. (Remember, Julie Andrews running in lush meadows in the Alps in the movie "Sound of Music?")

Buddha got his enlightenment when he was sitting under the shadow of a big tree. Green was revered even in biblical times. Psalms (chapter 23) talks about "leading through the green pastures."

Since the time of Cleopatra and continuing today, emeralds have set the standard for the ultimate color in green gemstones. A fine emerald is truly breathtaking.

Emerald is the birthstone for May. Emerald is the anniversary gemstone for the 20th, 35th and 55th year of marriage, the perfect emblem of an enduring love.

Traditional Metaphysical Properties of Emerald:

Love, domestic bliss, sensitivity, loyalty, memory, mental capacity, harmony, focus, eliminating negativity.
