May Birthstone
May Stone of the month Diamond

Emerald is the birthstone for those who were born in the month of MAY. The word EMERALD is derived from the word "Smaragdos" which means "Green stone" and this reflects the color of the emerald.

Emeralds are from the beryl family of minerals and were Cleopatra's favorite gemstones. This stone Emerald is a symbol of faith, courage and foresight and it signifies wisdom, growth and patience. This gemstone is said to be highly priced in terms of antiquity.

A special rectangular cut called the "Emerald cut" was developed since Emeralds can be easily destroyed.

Emeralds were first mined by ancient Egyptians in the eastern desert region about 2,000 years before Cleopatra's birth. But emerald mines were claimed by Cleopatra during her reign.Emeralds are found in Columbia, Brazil, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Columbia is said as a source of the finest emeralds.

Ancient traditional birthstones
  • Arabic: Emerald
  • Guardian Angel: Amriel
  • Hebrew: Agate
  • Hindu: Emerald
  • His Talismanic Stone: Carbuncle (Garnet)
  • Polish: Emerald
  • Roman: Agate

As said before, Emeralds can be easily destroyed; it is advised not to expose these gemstones to salt water. Jewelry should be removed while cleaning or doing chores. Emerald Jewelry should be carefully cleaned with a soft brush and warm water. These are some of the tips which can be helpful for making your jewelry last forever.
