Emerald is a name derived from the Greek word smaragdos, which means 'green stone'. It was discovered as early as 1300 B.C. It falls under the variety of beryllium aluminum silicate mineral; its pigment is actually resulted from a combination of chrome and vanadium. Aluminum is found in mineral makeup’s kaolin clay and silica is a mineral element found in mineral makeup. It is formed out of a hexagonal (trigonal) crystal system, a prismatic crystal structure that is vertically striated and terminated through small pyramid-like faces. Hexagonal and trigonal crystal systems have their own healing rock lifestyles. While it is originally known for its deep green color, emerald stones also come in tones of red or ‘red emerald', which is actually an emerald stone resulting from red beryl. While deep green emerald is known for to symbolize prosperity and blissful love, a change in its natural color is believed to symbolize a turn to unfaithfulness in relations. Hence, this stone instills sensitivity within the self and within others.

It helps eliminate the elements that impede progress to maintain an environment conducive to entering a healing meditative state.

Overall, it brings about a state that is inscribed with the recipe for transformation and enlightenment.

To promote enlightenment, the stone ensures physical, emotional and mental balance. It eliminates negativity by reflecting the good benefits of positive actions and by focusing on the intentions these actions have to raise consciousness, sharpen psychic abilities and open a sense of clairvoyance. It stimulates the gathering of wisdom by maintaining a sense of balance between the mental planes, to which it is gathered to protect.
