EMERALD

The Emerald is a vivid green and has long been a symbol for love and rebirth and is believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth. 

Cleopatra was famous for wearing Emeralds in her time. Ancient Egyptian mummies were often buried with an Emerald on their necks to symbolize eternal youth.

The deeper and more vivid the color of green is in the Emerald, the more valuable the gemstone. Today, most of the world's emeralds are mined in Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan, and Zambia.
