How and where emerald is formed

The most famous member of the beryl family, emerald is one of the four recognised precious gemstones (along with diamond, ruby and sapphire). Its deep green colour is a result of trace amounts of chromium or vanadium present when the mineral is formed. The main sources of emerald throughout the world include India, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Brazil, Egypt and Austria.

Emerald throughout history

Emerald has been known through the ages as a symbol of love and hope. The ancient Greeks and Romans considered it to be the gemstone of Venus, the goddess of love, beauty, prosperity and fertility. Cleopatra and the ancient Egyptians believed it was a symbol of eternal youth, representing fertility and rebirth, and to the Aztecs and Incas it was a holy stone, offered to the gods to ensure good fortune.
Emeralds with their soothing green hues were also used by early lapidaries, who would stare at them to revive their weary eyes between carving other gemstones, and today the colour green is still known to relieve stress and eye strain. 

Emerald meanings, properties and energies

Known as the ‚Äústone of successful love‚ÄĚ, emerald is said to attract good relationships, contentment and even domestic bliss! It opens the heart chakra and promotes loyalty, unity, friendship and unconditional love.

Emerald is believed to revive passion in not only your love life, but also your career, hobby or wherever it may be lacking. A stone of inspiration, intuition and vision, it is said to help you to focus your intentions and bring about positive action in your life. 

While emerald is thought to have a calming effect on your emotions, it is also known to have an invigorating effect on your mindset, encouraging growth and new beginnings. It is used to instill confidence, strength of character and the ability to enjoy life to the fullest.
