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.
Emeralds range in colour from green to blueish green, the most desirable having a strong colour saturation and a medium dark tone.
