The Emerald is one of the world’s most precious gemstones and is instantly recognizable by its beautiful deep green hue. The name ‘Emerald’ stems from the Greek word meaning ‘green gem’. It is also known as the stone of ongoing love and success. First records about the use of Emeralds dates back further than 5000 years, where the stone was hailed for its spiritual properties. The gem was used as a defense against spells and the dark arts throughout early periods. Warding away evil spirits was a key reason many people wore Emeralds, but the stone was also regarded for its beauty, so much so that many kings, queens, and leaders used the gem when adorning themselves in jewelry.

In fact, Queen Cleopatra of Egypt is known to have been a great admirer of the stone. Egyptian Emerald mines discovered within the past century have uncovered much about how the area near the Red Sea was once a hotbed of precious Emeralds, which signified eternal youth, prosperity, and had alleged healing properties. Other civilizations, such as the Incas and Babylonians, are also believed to have held the stone in, particularly high regard. The emerald is also considered the fourth foundation of the New Jerusalem.

Emerald crystals have been used throughout history for their alleged healing properties. The gem is said to emit a green ray of energy and stimulate the heart chakra, bringing both emotional and physical benefits and assisting with mental health. The stone promotes truth, balance, and harmony, leading to greater positivity and clearer thought processes. It is this reason why many use Emerald to improve their life prospects or to help maintain stability and clarity of vision when undergoing stress and turbulent times.

The stone is renowned for its alleged ability to treat a variety of health conditions, especially concerning the heart and lungs. The gem can assist with detoxification and the treatment of infections. Those with allergies may find Emerald beneficial, especially people who often suffer from headaches and sinusitis. An Emerald eye bath is said to restore eyesight and treat poor vision. People with nervous conditions may benefit from Emerald’s soothing energy rays. The healing properties of the stone are also useful for many other conditions, such as (but not limited to): irritable bowel syndrome, eczema, stomach ulcers, and asthma.
