Introduction

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.

Lore

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.

Healing

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.

Magical Associations And Uses

This stone is of the Earth element and is said to be associated with the Goddesses Diana and Artemis as well as Venus. As far as astrology goes this is a stone of the zodiac signs Taurus, Gemini, and Aries and is associated with the planet Venus.

Emerald is great when used with the Heart Chakra and can generate harmony in all aspects of your life.

This stone has been used in love magic, magic to promote sales, to increase public awareness at a firm. You may use this stone to calm your mind as well. It can help give someone the ability to meditate a little bit easier and to understand people as well. It can neutralize negative influences. This stone may also be used to help predict the future. It may also be used to help prevent snake bites, to help drive storms away, if you want to learn secrets Emerald may also help with that.

The best way to remember what Emerald may help you with is to keep these words in mind. Love, money, mental powers, protection, exorcism, and eyesight. For it will help with all of the above.

Conclusion

Emerald is a beautiful green colored stone and its lore is just as interesting as it looks. 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 highly believe in it because it seems to work for me the best out of all the different kinds of magic. Maybe this is because I am of the Earth element and stones represent that element. I am not sure. In either case I find stones to be fascinating and hopefully after finding this out so will you.

Voted up and interesting. There's definitely something mesmerizing about emeralds. In fact when I saw the image for this hub, I couldn't resist clicking. Then of course it was an interesting article, which sucked me in even more. Maybe there is something to say for gems having magical powers. Great hub!

Yes, that's a very pretty photo. Emerald is my birthstone {Gemini). And green is my favorite color.

I was never very impressed with diamonds or rubies.

Very interesting, I never knew these treasures held so much power. I may have to invest into an emerald.

Thank you Healthy Fat Guy. Diamonds to me are too regular, too normal. And for me I'm far from Normal. That's why I actually told my guy whenever he got me a ring to not get me a diamond one and he got me beautiful blue topaz ring surrounded by white.

Leaderofmany, stones do hold quite a bit of power. I have always found them to be beautiful but never believed it myself until I decided to reach into it and it worked.

I've got to tell Don and his wife,(Pagan), and such wonderful people, about you. I suspect his wife needs to read stuff like this. Don was my boss on the slope,(the best one I ever had)and I learned a lot about not judging people from them.

You know diamonds are aligned with sorrow for women, because of so many sad marriages. Maybe that's why i dislike them. Glad you liked the poem. Merry Freya? Haha! lily

Lily, thanks for sharing the information about diamonds, maybe that's why I really don't feel as interested in them as I do the other crystals and stones that are out there.

I would love it if you told this Don and his wife about me as well as others. I would feel proud of this. :)
