Emerald And Its Magical Properties
Emerald, known to be the birthstone for the month of may is a form of Beryl. This stone is an entrancing stone, at least for me it is, with its great colors of green and its wonderful properties. Like many gemstones and crystals Emerald has a deep history and very interesting lore. It can help us in ways that some may choose to believe or not believe.
Some ancient people believed that the Emerald was very much like a mirror that could reflect previous lives of a person. In the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries of Russia people would wear Emerald as a talisman to bring wisdom and serenity. It was believed and is still believed that emerald mixed with gold is a great combination as a talisman or amulet for love, hope, fidelity, wisdom, courage and foresight. It was said that it'd guard from unfaithfulness. An interesting thing people believed was that the stone would break down or apart of a spouse was being unfaithful to another.
Emerald may help in treating diabetes, fever and inflammations. It may even help in illnesses of the liver. It is believed to be very helpful for those who suffer with Epilepsy, skin diseases and for women who suffer with diseases of the urinal-genital region. It's also believed that looking at this stone prior to going to sleep could help with those who suffer from insomnia. It can help relax your eyes and can be beneficial to the heart and immune system. It's healing properties are said to be of most helpful during the full moon.
Keep in mind that I am not a doctor and I think it is important that you seek out professional help whether it be from a professional healer, or a doctor or whatever it is. Crystal healing can prove to be helpful no doubt but once again, I am not a doctor this is just an alternative that you can go to.

The art of crystal magic is still being used today for those who walk along a Pagan or Pagan like path, for example Wicca.

I am not sure. In either case I find stones to be fascinating and hopefully after finding this out so will you.
