EMERALD - The birthstone for Taurus and May

Historically Emeralds were seen as an amulet which was believed to protect against evil spells. The ancient Egyptians thought Emeralds represented fertility and rebirth while the Greeks associated them with Venus, the godess of love and beauty. In Ireland Emeralds are traditionally associated with good luck.

Flawless Emeralds are rare and extremely valuable, most have tiny mineral inclusions. They can be brittle so they need to be kept away from water and extreme heat which can cause them to crack.
