Emerald is also considered to be the 'stone of prosperity' and hence brings fortune and wealth to the wearer. Zodiac signs Cancer, Taurus, and Gemini can benefit from wearing Emeralds.

May Birthstone Emerald Care and Cleaning

In their inherent state, emeralds are often hard. However, most gemstones have inclusions and surface-reaching fractures that weaken them. Further, as deep green emeralds are rare, most gemstones are heat treated to deepen their green colour or glass filled to remove the inclusions we do not recommend to wear these treated stones.Most emeralds are dipped in oil which seeps into the fractures however this practice doesn't affect the energy of the stone, protects them, and makes them more appealing.

Emeralds can develop internal cracks if they suffer from an impact so it is advised to choose pendant/bracelet/ring settings that protect the stone well. Wearing it as a pendant is most recommended - as it also aligns the energies with the heart chakra.

Store the gemstones carefully when not in use to prevent any scratches and abrasions on the surface. Also, avoid storing them in contact with other stones such as diamonds which are extremely hard and can damage the emerald.

Cleaning emeralds should be done carefully and only when needed. Use a soft cloth and mild soapy water and clean it gently. Avoid chemicals and steam and ultrasonic cleaning as they can remove oils. You can dip them in natural oils which enhances their appeal

  • Light an incense stick or sage and offer its smoke to yourself, the surrounding, and unto your birthstone jewellery/geode/crystal
