Emerald is a beautiful stone with a rich history. A form of Beryl, the term Emerald means “green”. The earliest record of Emeralds was recorded in Egypt, but the finest Emeralds were mined in Columbia.
The Romans associated the stone with the goddess Venus, and hailed it as a stone of fertility. Christians hailed it as a stone of resurrection. Others praised it for its healing qualities including curing diseases, improving memory, calming fears and enhancing the gift of prophecy. Lore states that there was an ancient Emerald Tablet that held the secrets for enlightenment!
Emerald resonates to the heart chakra, enhancing feelings of compassion and unconditional love. For those on a spiritual path, what better stone to work with since our Divine Nature speaks of unconditional love? This stone keeps us centered in love of self and others. It is said to help heal a broken heart. Since an open heart is the key to the flow of life’s blessings, this stone is considered the stone of prosperity. If you want to attract prosperity into your life, wear the emerald as it allows us to attract what we want.
Emerald, like Moldavite, is considered a stone of the Holy Grail, since they are viewed as tools for opening the heart. Emeralds are beautiful in their rough state but shimmer in the polished form. Emerald helps strengthen the physical heart, as well as clear heavy emotional baggage and energies of victimhood and unworthiness. It helps us claim our personal power and operate from a space of compassion. What better way to bring harmony, hope, gentleness, acceptance, encouragement and prosperity into your life than by working with this beautiful stone?
