Emeralds - Romancing the Stone

(c) AnnaMariah

There are few stones as romantic and prized as emeralds. They have been sought after, fought and even killed for. Its checkered, sometimes violent path, seems at odds to this beautiful, deep green stone that works to heal and open the heart.

Emeralds have been highly treasured since ancient times. Theosophus, the ancient Greek philosopher, believed that emerald are good for the eyes, and impart visual clarity. Shakespeare wrote, “the deep green emeralds, in whose fresh regard weak sights their sickly radiance do amend.” Personally, I connect more with Emerald’s radiance and how it assists the human and spiritual heart of the wearer.

One thing I really love about writing these articles is that they make me go deeper into what I know and sense about the stones. I could look up a lot of info in the many books I have, but so could you. I don’t want to give you a bunch of regurgitated details that you could find anywhere. The reason Takara asked me to write these articles is that she knows that I have a deep connection to the stones and that combined with my skills as an empathy this gives me a unique perspective into the life and purposes of each stone.

When sit down to write, I ask the stone what is special about it, and then I listen for the reply. Last night I was with a couple of friends who are amazing healers and was telling them about the beautiful emeralds I purchased at the gem show recently. They wanted to know what was special about emeralds.  I paused and “tuned in” to the stones I had just purchased. Emeralds, as all green stones, are heart stones, working to help open and heal the heart chakra. Emeralds, though, have an earthier quality, that actually tends to pull in and ground that loving energy in a way that makes it more accessible for both the physical and emotional the bodies. This loving green stone, can help relieve both the physical and emotional heart of old hurts and wounds, allowing it to open to more love and abundance on all levels of being.

Once your heart is freed of the heaviness that tends to settle in from a life of small and large hurts, you can begin to move through your life with more courage both to love and allow yourself to be loved as well. As you move into your life with a new sense of grace, you have more compassion for yourself and those you come in contact with.

Have you been afraid of showing vulnerability? Wearing emeralds will assist you in letting go of this fear and help to remove any underlying trauma that may have come from previous wounds. As your heart heals, your entire spirit can be more open to all the possibilities that the universe has to offer you. You may find yourself feeling grounded, and yet lovingly expanded, almost needing to reach out and streeeettttccchhhh to let it all in. Stretch as needed and feel the love, inspiration and grace of the universe and the people in your life.  Breathe deeply and allow in the healing vibrations of emerald and know you are loved, and you are love. Everything is possible when you are in this space of grace.

Although, technically, the gemstone for May is Emeralds, I don't want to forget to include emerald quartz. Emerald Quartz comes in a close second as far as depth of color, and if cut well, can certainly shine beautifully. When working with stones, a great deal of its properties come from the color rather than the mineral composition. Happily this is definitely true when working with emeralds and emerald quartz. Emerald quartz carries much the same heart healing energy as true emeralds. I find, however, that the big difference is that in my perception it doesn’t seem to be as good at grounding the energy into your body. That said, it’s a beautiful alternative to emeralds.

Shown here is an Emerald and gold-filled “beaded chain”. This design is flexible allowing many options. Wear just the beaded chain for a very simple, elegant necklace. Wear it with the gold-filled enhancer and emerald focal piece and feel how the emerald focal piece enhances the energy of the necklace. Finally you can wear it with a BioElectric Shield, the Shield shown here is the 14k Gold TriGem Shield (with emerald, diamond and sapphire). If you are interested in this or any of the EMF protection, energy balancing BioShields Takara would be more than happy to help you. She’s been wearing a Shield since 1996.

I am honored to be able to share some of my love of stones with you.
