Emerald is a superior stone that is quite rare and coveted for both its natural beauty and its symbolism. But, before we dive into the symbolism of emerald, let's look at it's composition as it's makeup is one of the reasons it is so rare. According to, “Emerald is a…variety of Beryl. It has a hexagonal crystal system and a vitreous luster. Emerald is considered to be a precious gem and takes its green color from traces of chromium and vanadium. Emerald is 7.5-8 on the Mohs hardness scale.” 
      Additionally, it has trace amounts of chromium, or also vanadium, that can create its stunning green color. As a result of its precious formation paired with its symbolism, emerald is a rather rare and costly stone. So you will often see it sold as very small raw gems.

Historically, emerald has been associated with many cultures such as the Aztecs, Incans and Egyptians. In these cultures, emeralds were coveted by royalty and thus the stone gained a reputation as a symbol of royalty itself. Emerald is actually known as ‘the stone of kings.' Cleopatra is one famous royal known to have adorned herself in emeralds to reflect her status of wealth and power.

Amazingly, emeralds are also mentioned in the bible as a symbol of creation energy. states that, Emerald was one of four sacred gems given to Solomon by God in the bible. These were said to have granted the owner power over all creation. The figure of Solomon in this text is synonymous with wisdom, making the theme of emeralds and intelligence follow closely. Another instance is when God dictates the creation of the priestly breastplate in the book of Exodus, and orders it to be made with various precious gems including emerald-green gems. This breastplate was meant to indicate the will of God.”
