Emerald is the bluish green to green variety of beryl, a mineral species that includes aquamarine. t. Hildegard of Bingen, the noted lithologist, declared, “All the green of nature is concentrated within the Emerald.”[Megemont, 80-81] Representing youth in the age of man, the power of this lush crystal stirs the soul like the heart of spring, symbolizing hope and the future, renewal and growth. It is a Seeker of Love and a Revealer of Truth, inspiring an ongoing search for meaning, justice, compassion and harmony.
It is said that Emerald is an excellent stone for reviving passion, whether for an interest, a person, or a job. To attract romantic love, wear or carry an Emerald out of sight near the heart.
