May does not disappoint the senses. You don’t have to look very far, not only to see, but to smell the beauty that May flowers produce. Even a hillside filled with dandelions is enough to lighten up your day. Take a minute to unwind on a calm evening and listen for the buzzing of the bumble bees in the nearest flower garden. Spring is a refreshing time filled with new life and long overdue outdoor time. Emerald, the gemstone for the month of May, certainly follows suit.
If the relationships in your life are blossoming along with the flowers this spring, celebrate them with an emerald!
There are not many gemstones that are as mysterious as emeralds. The history of the emerald dates back about 4,000 years to Babylon, the “cradle of civilization”. Green is one of the most calming colors on the color wheel, and is supposed to encourage growth, peace, balance, and reflection.
Ancient Romans felt that the soul of a person was restored when they wore emerald jewelry. There is a belief now that it can help those who suffer from emotional disorders and depression. There’s no arguing that an emerald will turn heads, widen eyes, and reaffirm the strength of love in your life.
Emerald is a great gift, that can symbolically complement unforgettable experiences and milestones. It is a fairly hard gemstone but is subject to breakage due to its possible numerous inclusions and surface reaching fractures. Most emeralds are treated with an oil to minimize their appearance.
If you’re celebrating the continuation of a strong relationship, Emerald is a great choice. Let love bloom this May!
