I don’t actually know how many years I’ve had this beautiful emerald ring that my “Grandpa Garber” (he adopted us, or we adopted him, when I was just a sprout of about 6). It’s too big for my skinny little fingers so twice I’ve tried to get it resized but no one will do it because there is a slight fracture in the stone.
A couple of weeks ago, I was compelled to take it out of the drawer where I keep it. It just felt wrong to have it hidden away. I was inspired to put it on my silver chain and wear it. It felt really good, like I was following some strong pull from the Universe.
Curious about what an emerald represents, today I finally googled “what does an emerald represent“. (I’ve been gonna do that for at least a few weeks now!). And, all I could do when I read the Crystal Vaults page was smile and say “OF COURSE!”. 🙂
… the power of this lush crystal stirs the soul like the heart of spring, symbolizing hope and the future, renewal and growth. It is a Seeker of Love and a Revealer of Truth, inspiring an ongoing search for meaning, justice, compassion and harmony. 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. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. Emerald promotes friendship, balance between partners, and is particularly known for providing domestic bliss, contentment and loyalty. It was dedicated in the ancient world to the goddess Venus for its ability to insure security in love.
