Symbol of eternal life in ancient Egypt, the emerald was considered a Gift from the god of wisdom: Thot. It is even said that Hermes Trismegistus, the Patron Saint of Alchemy, wrote these words, which supposedly hold the secrets of the highest magic, on an emerald tablet: “I speak not lies, but what is true and most certain: what is below is like that which is above, and what is above is like that which is below, to accomplish the miracles of one thing.”
The Emerald, a legendary precious stone
According to alchemists, an emerald fell from Lucifer’s forehead in the process of his demise. Esotericism considers it the most powerful talisman. It comes from Hell and is the only one that can turn against the infernal forces since it knows everything about them.
The stone symbolizing love
Promises of love lasting forever are never ridiculous when they are accompanied by emeralds.
According to tradition, emeralds are linked to Venus, the goddess of love, friendship and lovers. As such, it is viewed as the most effective gem to come into contact with the higher Spheres in order to ask them – among others – to fulfill your wishes, desires and promises of love.
This symbol of love also bears the image of purity and loyalty to commitments.
The emerald, the Stone of the Angels
Also called “Stone of the Angels“, the emerald produces beneficial effects, whether you wear it or in an elixir. There are so many benefits that I will only name the most significant ones:
- On the spiritual level: it favors wisdom, intellectual development, psychological balance, development of your intuition and extrasensory abilities (notably clairvoyance). It repels negative energies and serves as a barrier against evil spells.
- On the emotional level: it makes it possible to avoid fears, anxiety, phobias. It protects love and favors consistency, loyalty and longevity. Furthermore, it is said to possess aphrodisiac properties.
- On the physical level: it favors the heart, the liver and the kidneys. It relieves them when they are affected. It favors fertility and also contributes to healing eyesight problems. Its green color confers a powerful regenerative power upon it (Alchemists call it the “Panna stone”).
- On the material level: it favors wealth and the fulfillment of your projects.
Here is a short anecdote to conclude: the biggest emerald ever discovered was found in Bahia in 2001. It weighs 381 kilos (780 pounds), in other words 180,000 carats. It is estimated to be worth around 400 million dollars!
