Stone of the Month
May's birthstone is emerald. Emerald is a member of the beryl family. Fine quality emeralds are rare and require some special care. Inclusions in emeralds are acceptable, and intense green color is desirable.
The ancient Romans associated this gemstone with fertility and rebirth, and dedicated it to Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. Emeralds are believed to bestow wisdom, growth, and patience.
Emerald is designated as the stone for the 20th and 45th wedding anniversaries.
