            May's Birthstone

If you were born in the month of May, your birthstone is Emerald. Emeralds areknown for their vibrant green colour, making them the perfect spring gemstone. The gemstone also symbolises rebirth and renewal for millennia. The word "emerald" comes from smaragdos, ancient Greek for a green gem.

From the poetic description of Ireland as "the Emerald Isle" to the vivid green of the famous stone, emeralds have captured the hearts and minds of people for centuries.

According to legend, emeralds make their wearers more intelligent and quick-witted, and they are thought to be able to cure illnesses such as cholera and malaria. Nowadays, it is the gemstone given for 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.
