May Birthstone


May Birthstone

Emerald is the birthstone for May. Their name stemmed from the Greek word ‘Smargados’ which means ‘Green gem’. They are famous for their green hues, however there are also naturally red emeralds and they are considered to be extremely rare. The green is one of the most calming colours, this stone is thought to represent fertility, rebirth and love.

The best qualities of emeralds are located in Columbian mines, however they are also mined in the Ural mountains of Russia, Zambia, India, Norway, Pakistan, Australia, USA, Brazil and Madagascar.

Cleopatra’s favourite gemstone is the emerald, and it is often associated with royalty since time immemorial.
