BIRTHSTONES & ANNIVERSARIES
As the gem of spring, emerald is the perfect choice as the May Birthstone. It’s also the gem of the twentieth and thirty-fifth wedding anniversaries.
There are other green gems, like tourmaline and peridot, but the May Birthstone is the one that’s always associated with the lushest landscapes and the richest greens. Ireland is the Emerald Isle. Seattle, in the US state of Washington, is the Emerald City. Thailand’s most sacred religious icon is called the Emerald Buddha, even though it’s carved from green jadeite.
Emerald is the most famous member of the beryl family. Legends endowed the wearer with the ability to foresee the future when emerald was placed under the tongue, as well as to reveal truth and be protected against evil spells. The gem was once also believed to cure diseases like cholera and malaria. Wearing this gem was believed to reveal the truth or falseness of a lover’s oath as well as make one an eloquent speaker.
