May's Birthstone

The emerald...

Emerald is a life-affirming stone and one of infinite patience. It is known as the stone of successful love and represents great loyalty and integrity. 

The polished gemstones are often breathtakingly beautiful and command a high price. Probably why you have to have been married for 55 years before you would recive an emerald ring.

The green of Emerald is that of the forest and nature during the period of maximum growth. It recalls lush pastures and an abundance of foliage on trees and bushes. 

Emerald is the stone of love and friendship and keeps partnerships in balance. This precious gem also opens you up to your latent clairvoyant abilities and promotes the gathering of wisdom from the mental planes.
