  • Brief Information:

    Ancient Egyptians believed the green color of emerald represented fertility and rebirth. They would commonly carve emerald scarabs and place them at the heart of a mummy to make the deceased's health flourish in the afterlife. Cleopatra herself was known for her fascination with emeralds. Pale green emeralds were once thought by the Romans to be unripe and as they changed to a darker shade of green, they were maturing in potency. Gazing into the cool green color was reported by Pliny, an author and philosopher of ancient Rome, to ease eyestrain. The Roman emperor Nero Augustus reportedly watched gladiator games through a large emerald gemstone because he found the color to be calming.
