May's Birthstone is Emerald
Meaning of Emerald
Emerald is the stone of the heart because it symbolizes mercy, compassion, and universal love. It represents all the wonderful things in this world and how they’re all interconnected with love.
Often called the “Stone of Successful Love,” Emerald opens and nurtures the heart and the Heart Chakra. Its soothing energy provides healing to all levels of the being, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit.
Through time, the emerald has been known as a symbol of truth and love. In ancient Greece and Rome, emerald was said to be the gemstone of the goddess Venus, purveyor of love and hope.
The Emerald (Panna) stone thus highly benefits the Leo descendant. Virgos are ruled by Mercury so the Panna stone is most suitable for this sun sign too.
