Emerald – May Birth Stone

Emeralds are the color of spring time and signify hope, new growth and eternal life. Not only are emeralds rich in color and beauty, they are also rich in history.

The first emeralds were mined 4000 years ago in Egypt. While Cleopatra became synonymous with the gem, her emerald collection was actually pretty low grade stuff.

Only when Spain conquered what is now Columbia did the world discover how gorgeous the gemstone could really be.
