When I think of Springtime, I think of GREEN! After a loooong winter in the midwest, we get to see little pops of color work there way up from the ground after the snow melts. Spring = Green grass, little green sprouts, blossoming trees, colorful fashion, and of course: green GEMS!
May is a WONDERFUL month to be born in, as the colored stone that represents your birth month is EMERALD, a beautiful stone indeed.
Emerald is the most precious stone in the beryl group. The name comes from the old French word 'esmeralde', which was derived from the Greek word 'smaragdos' meaning 'green stone'.
The historical green color of emerald is unparalleled in the world of gemstones and it is considered as one of the most 'precious four' of all gemstones, which also includes sapphire, ruby and diamond.
