The staff from my new age shop, Mimosa Books & Gifts, had this to share:

If you need some peace and calming in your life, Emerald is the stone for you! These beauties are also excellent for all matters of heart healing, balance, cooperation, and for connecting with Earth energy. Like aquamarine, emerald is a form of beryl (Be3Al2(Si O3)6). Many people associate emerald mostly with jewelry, but to people in the middle ages it was a very mystical stone, useful for divination and scrying.

One method was to inscribe the letters of the alphabet around the inner rim of a bowl, then fill the bowl with water, so that the water’s surface sat just below the bottoms of the letters. Then you would use an emerald pendulum (at the time this might simply be a stone tied to a string) to dowse for letters, spelling out the oracular message. Another method was to have a child hold an emerald, repeating a prayer with closed eyes. An angel would appear to the child and answer whatever question the child asked.

Safety note: Since emerald contains aluminum, please don’t use it for making elixirs.

Emerald Lore:

There’s a story from India about the origin of emeralds: Once there was a young woman who was troubled by dreams that kept her awake much of the night. When they woke her, she would walk outside long after midnight, trying to find peace. One night when the moon was full, she was awakened by a terrible nightmare, in which her family’s home burned to the ground with everyone inside. She woke up in a panic. Trying to forget this horrible dream, she went for a walk outside under the full moon.

Fireflies swarmed all around her, their cool green lights flicking on and off. But as she watched them, she saw that one firefly was brighter than all the rest. This firefly’s light didn’t go dark after a few seconds, the way the others did; instead, its bright green light glowed steadily. Fascinated, she went closer to examine this special firefly. What she found turned out to be not an insect, but a brilliant green crystal. She had a ring made out of the gem, which she wore from then on. After that, nightmares never troubled her again.

    Love my emerald pieces. I hadn’t worked with them in quite awhile but then suddenly they spoke to me. I’m balancing out anxiety with peace and allowing myself once again to be a part of the whole.
    I’d lost a longtime job and once it was over I realized my existence was my job. Thank goodness the light has come back.

  2. […] Emeralds filled the house points hourglass for Hufflepuff house at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This may be because their green color is so in alignment with serpent energy OR it could have something to do with the history and lore of some Emeralds being so dark (even considered evil or cursed at times).
