The emerald is lush and green, and can be used to lift the spirit and calm the mind when you’re feeling emotionally vulnerable. Considered a sacred stone of eternal life, emeralds were used by the Egyptians and Greeks as talismans for both love magic and financial fortune. Use emeralds to revive lost passion and restore confidence and self-esteem, or even to boost business in times of economic downturn.
