Emerald

Emerald is a lush green to greenish blue precious gemstone that has a long storied history of exciting imaginations since antiquity. Rome’s Pliny the Elder described Emerald in the first century AD: “…nothing greens greener” was his verdict. He described the use of Emerald by early lapidaries, who “have no better method of restoring their eyes than by looking at the emerald, its soft, green color comforting and removing their weariness.” Even today, the color green is known to relieve stress and eye strain.

There are other green gems, but Emerald is always associated with the lushest landscapes and the richest greens. Ireland is the Emerald Isle. Seattle, Washington, is the Emerald City. Thailand’s most sacred religious icon is called the Emerald Buddha, even though it’s carved from green jadeite.

Its color reflects new spring growth, which makes it the perfect choice of a birthstone for May, as well as the gemstone for the 20th and 35th wedding anniversary.
