The color green has long been a symbol of nature and all its beauty, mystery and power. Maybe this explains why the green gemstone, known as the Emerald, has held such fascination for people throughout history. Emeralds are considered by historians to be the first gemstone ever discovered. The word Emerald is derived from a Greek word meaning green gemstone and Emerald jewellery was thought to possess magical and healing powers for those who wore it. The ancient Greeks dedicated the Emerald to the Goddess Venus because they believed it was able to reveal faithfulness among lovers. Today, the Emerald is considered to be the color of beauty and love. Throughout history Emeralds were revered by some of the wealthiest and most powerful dynasties in the world. Emerald rings, Emerald necklaces, embellishments on crowns and thrones, and much more. One of the most famous examples of this is the Crown Jewels.
