Emerald through the years has been claimed to have many abilities, from banishing demons to predicting the future. This magical stone has an air of mysticism, said to ward off curses and enchantments. Egyptians mined this precious stone as far back as 3000 B.C.E., but the name Emerald actually comes from the Greek word “smargos”, or “green stone”. Used to bring others together, this stone encourages love, loyalty, and camaraderie.
