Emerald - Emerald is the natural birthstone of those fortunate enough to be born in the heart of spring (April 20 - May 20). These green crystals are said to bring you renewal, success in new ventures, and good health. Emerald has been a source of fascination and reverence in many cultures for over six thousand years, sold in the markets of Babylon as early as 4,000 B.C.
