Deep-dive into You: May birthstone

Emerald

The birthstone for people born in the month of May is emerald (like myself). Green is the Greek term smaragdus, which is derived from the word emerald. An emerald, like aquamarine, is a green variation of beryl that is based on the impurities found in the beryl.


Brazil, Colombia, Zambia, and Afghanistan are all known for its emeralds. Because high-quality emeralds are extremely rare, most emeralds are heat treated to intensify their green hue. Cleopatra was known to be a lover of emeralds, and during her reign, she claimed possession of every emerald mine in Egypt.


Along with ruby and sapphire, the emerald is one of the "big three" colored gemstones. These three large jewels are worth more than all other gemstones combined. Beryl picks up its green color from trace amounts of chromium or vanadium along with trace amounts of iron to give it a bluish green color.



Birthstone healing powers and therapeutic effects are the subject of various stories and myths. Wearing a gemstone throughout its designated month can enhance its healing properties and have a therapeutic effect on the wearer, believe it or not. Each birthstone could be worn in each month if you want to make the most of it. Birthstones make wonderful gifts for almost any occasion. They are lovely and have a special meaning for the person who will wear them.
