Emerald is known to be Cleopatra’s favourite gemstone and it has been a gem that people have been fascinated by for over 6,000 years. A fine Emerald may actually be 2 or 3 times more valuable than a diamond.
Emeralds are even known to be able to help people with confidence issues, speech difficulties and allergies. Many cultures believe Emeralds have various powers, for example -
- The ancient Egyptians believed the Emerald stood for fertility and rebirth.
- In ancient Rome, gods supposedly watched gladiator fights through a large Emerald as the colour was known to be calming.
- In China, Thursday used to be the day for wearing green and Emeralds for good luck.
