What are an Emerald's Properties

Emeralds for Love, Abundance, Legal Affairs

Emerald is the beautiful birth stone of May, so it's a great time to take a look at the stunning green mineral. 

During the fifth month of the year (depending on where you live), Mother Nature is turning all things a shade of green, give or take a few snowstorms tossed in for good measure.

Emeralds are variation of beryl, which include Morganite (pink), Aquamarine (blue), Heliodor (yellow), Goshenite (clear) and Bixbite (red). 

Melody in her encyclopedia “Love is in The Earth,” calls Emeralds the stone of successful love because it provides domestic bliss. She also states the crystal can enhance memory and stimulate mental capacity. “The mineral helps to combine intelligence with discernment, allowing for the choice of right action as the only option available.”

Melody also notes that Emeralds help with: 

  • Opening heart chakra
  • Maintaining focus
  • Eliminating negativity bringing forth positive actions
  • Attaining positive actions in legal affairs
  • Achieving depth in meditation and maintain that state after mediation.
  • Treatment of spine, lungs, heart and eyes 

With its brilliant green color, Robert Simmons describes Emeralds as a stone that purely represents the energy patterns of the activated heart chakra in “The Book of Stones.” “It helps one live and act from the heart, offering unconditional love.” It also clears the connection with Divine love. And an outcome of love is abundance, allowing one to attract what we want in life.

Co-author Naisha Ahsian describes one of Emeralds’ gifts as clearing the body of heaviness and patterns of victimhood and rejection. It helps with wealth and abundance by eliminating thoughts of unworthiness. 

Long History of Emeralds

Emperor Nero had poor eyesight and would watch theater productions and gladiator competitions through hollowed out emeralds. This might be how Emeralds became valued for restoring the eyes. 

The Egyptians used Emeralds to help with infertility. Women also would wear the jewel to prevent miscarriage and to alleviate pain during childbirth. 

The crystal has a long history of treating serious illness such as epilepsy, malaria, cholera and poisoning. 

Emeralds were given as engagement rings because it was believed the crystal would change color if the person was unfaithful. 

The Incas believed Emeralds were the tears of the moon goddess. There is a legend of an Emerald the size of an ostrich egg that was worshipped and given the name Umina. When Umina was displayed, the priests asked the worshippers to donate emerald as these were the daughters of the goddess.
