Emeralds are gemstones known for their beautiful green colour. The precious stone was actually named after its intense green shade. The word “emerald” derives from the Greek word for “green stone”: σμάραγδος (smaragdos).


Emeralds can be found all over the world. But as far as we know, they were first mined in Ancient Egypt in 1500 B.C.


In astrology, emeralds are the lucky stones of the zodiac signs Taurus and Cancer. In crystal healing, they are known for their calming effect.
