Emerald has long been seen as a hugely powerful gem. It has a certain energy and aura that enchants the mind. From Cleopatra to Aristotle and Alexander the Great, there is so much mythology and lore stashed within the Emerald. The Chaldeans were sure the goddess Ishtar was encased within the Emerald stone, the Ancient Egyptians believed it was an amulet of rebirth and fertility, and the Incas believed it to be a stone that promised eternal life. Studded within the crown jewels of Russia, linked to the Greek goddess Venus, and even believed to be the material the holy grail was made from, there are a thousand and one stories that shine out of the Emerald.
