Emeralds

For thousands of years emeralds have been one of the most sought-after natural elements of the earth. The Ancient Greeks and Romans wrote of them frequently in their texts, describing in detail of their vivid and comforting color and beauty. Emeralds come from a mineral known as beryl, which include other gemstones such as aquamarine. In previous times, emerald was believed to give the wearer protection from evil and disease.
