The emerald is one of the most coveted gemstones in the world. Although not exceptionally uncommon – emeralds are found in 29 countries, including the United States – to find an emerald of excellent quality is rare indeed. The name emerald is derived from the Greek for “greenstone”, and is a symbolic representation of new life, rebirth, youth, and good fortune. Over the years, alternative meanings for the emerald have emerged and include friendship, faithfulness, and loyalty. All of these meanings make it the perfect birthstone for May, and the perfect opportunity to give an emerald inspired gift.
Emeralds occur in all shades of green, from yellow-green to blue-green; the lighter shades are often classified as beryl.
