Emerald is the birthstone for May. It is the green to greenish blue variety of beryl. The green of the emerald is the colour of life and of the springtime which makes it the perfect choice of a birthstone for the month of May. The first known emerald mines were in Egypt, dating from 330 BC into the 1700’s. Cleopatra was known to have a passion for emerald, and used it in her royal adornments. Legends endowed the wearer with the ability to reveal truth and be protected against evil spells. Even today, the color green is known to relieve stress.
