The name itself is derived from the Greek smaragdus, which means “green”. It was often believed to be the Stone of Rebirth, granting the wearer good fortune and everlasting youth.
“No matter what anyone says or does, my task is to be emerald, my color undiminished”
-Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor
Known as the stone of wisdom, emeralds have been worshiped by royalty around the world. Cleopatra was thought to favor Emeralds above all others. Great minds such as Aristotle, Alexander the Great and Charlemagne all wore talismans containing emeralds. It was revered as the stone of intuition and foresight.
