    Emerald
    The proper name for the emerald is beryl, but there are different colors of beryl. Emerald Green is the color as well as the stone. When blue is added to the green, the beryl is known as Aquamarine. Pink beryl is morganite, yellow beryl is golden beryl, yellow-green beryl is heliodor. There is also a red beryl, but it is quite rare. Chemically, it is a beryllium-aluminum silicate whose color is due to small quantities of chromium compounds.

    Emerald is a stone of love and romance. It brings and enhances joy, cleansing, clairvoyance, memory, and faith. It also benefits intuition and communication, and promotes truthfulness. Emerald is associated with the heart chakra. The emerald is said to bring the wearer reason and wisdom. The strongest time for the powers of the emerald is said to be spring.

    Very nice, emeralds are awesome.

    I bought a few recently, kyanite and tourmaline and that got me interested in the world of gemstones. And what beliefs and facts are presented about them. Its very interesting to me. I wouldn't have thought, I was totally oblivious until now where I want to know about them more.

    Thanks, I am communicating better now whether due to this or the alternative treatment I had recently, I am happier to talk at last without feeling reserved, you know proper communication rather than just visualization as much as I love doing that nothing beats a good conversation. An energy shift has certainly been happening in recent times that I can hardly explain and its liberating.

    It looks a bit like this


    But you have to ask yourself, if someone gives you arsenic, should you be flattered?
    He let you take arsenic crystals just like that? Did you wear gloves or put it away somewhere where its non hazardous?
