Emerald is the birthstone for May and zodiac sign of Taurus. It consists primarily of the mineral beryl, although the green colour derives from the emerald´schromium content. They are mainly mined in Afghanistan, Colombia, India, Pakistan, Russia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The word originates from the French "esmeraude", which derives from the Greek "smargados" meaning green gemstone. Emeralds are believed to bring those who wear them good luck and psychic abilities, while the stone itself represents love and fidelity.
