If you were a May baby you are lucky enough to have the gorgeous green Emerald as your Birthstone.
Emeralds are thought of as precious stones. They are a member of the Beryl family, so in their light green form they are often referred to as Green Beryl, but the clearer, deeper the green the more they are sought after and the higher they are valued. It is these clear deep green stones that we know as Emeralds.
Emeralds have been a prized gemstone for centuries and were often used to decorate royal crowns and jewels in many different countries. Early civilisations worshipped Emerald stones for their spiritual power too.
Associated with the Heart Chakra, Emerald is believed to enhance your own self love and keep your heart true. By sharing this honest love with your partner you can, in turn, create long lasting relationships and domestic bliss.
As this precious green crystal opens the heart is is thought to bring in love, joy, positivity, inner strength and abundance, whilst helping to diminish feelings of loss and powerlessness. It is often recommended as a crystal to ease heartache.
Meditate with an Emerald placed on your heart chakra, whilst visualising your heart opening, to help experience pure love and positivity.
