May’s birthstone is the beautiful and bright Emerald – the perfect stone for a spring birthday! Emerald is one of the most prized gemstones, appearing in a pure green or blue-green color. Many times Emeralds are found in the “step” or “emerald” cut, but there are other popular cuts for this stone, including cabochon or dome shapes.

According to legend, emeralds cured a variety of ailments, including poor eyesight, infertility, and even low I.Q. It was also said to allow the wearer to predict the future. Now it’s known for being a beautiful and fashionable stone, with a fair amount of toughness and a hardness of 7.5-8.
