EMERALDS - The Gem of Good Fortune

The birthstone of May, Emerald, was Cleopatra’s favorite gem.

Since antiquity, Emerald has been a symbol of spiritual awareness, protection, love, and wisdom. Ancient Romans and the Greeks believed it to be the representative of the Goddess Venus.
In Indian astrology, 'Emerald' comes from the Sanskrit term Marakata that means the green of growing things.
