*925 EMERALD BIRTHSTONE OF MAY


Hexagonal in crystal form
Mined in Zambia and Columbia
Gemstones valued more than diamond
Radiant green their unique colour.
Holy stone of Ancient Incas
Used by Mayans in their worship
Prized as jewels in Pharoah's Egypt
Hexagonal in crystal form.

Emerald - Nature's perfect gemstone
Prized for charm and cut and colour
Emerald jewel to bring fertility
Favourite gemstone of Victorians
Green rapport with life and nature
Linked with Zodiac sign of Taurus
Strengthens spine and eyes and memory
Emerald - Nature's perfect gemstone.

May the month of emerald birthstone
Symbolizing faith and friendship
Queen of gems with unique lustre.
Energy from Planet Mercury
Focussed - all his heat and ardour
Through the facets of your emerald
Giving love and life and leisure
May the month of emerald bitrhstone.

Emeralds - Nature's oldest gemstones
Hexagonal in crystal form
Emerald - Nature's perfect gemstone
May the month of emerald birthstone
Birthstone emerald of month the May
Gemstone perfect - nature's emerald
Form crystal in hexagonal
Gemstones oldest - nature's emeralds.

Dedicated to all the lovely PH Ladies who possess an
emerald and all those who would love to possess one.

    Well I guess this explains why I always felt that I had a bit of Incan or Mayan heritage in my soul! Beautiful words about emeralds. As a child I didn't appreciate that stone; it seemed the whole natural world was green and I desired a more colorful, ethereal birthstone; or even a diamond, seemed more flashy to me than green emerald. But now I see the beauty inherent in each stone and appreciate all of them, but none quite so much as the emerald. Can see you did a lot of homework, researching these gemstones. Hats off to you.

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
