May Birthstone – Beryl

Historically, the emeralds have been considered as the royal gemstone. They also have been used in engagement and wedding rings or alongside diamonds or other gems in common jewelry. Ancient Egypt mummies were buried with an emerald on their neck that symbolized eternal youth.

The deeper the green, the more valuable the gemstone. Some rare emeralds may contain birthmarks known as inclusions and this do not decrease the value of the gemstone.

The green symbolized love and rebirth – due the Egyptians - as well as fertility once it’s Venus’ gem.

The gemstone spirituality is linked to heart’s wisdom, compassion, opening the soul to receive and give love, acting like an activator of your emotional self.
