Green Emerald

Green emerald crystals or gem stones are a thing of beauty. There are few places left in the world that mines green emerald (there are few mines left that contain the material). Ancient Egyptians were known to harvest the material in mile long caverns known as Cleopatra's Mines. These mines were discovered by explorers in the 19th century. Unfortunately they had been already completely harvested by the Egyptians hundreds of years earlier.

The green in green emeralds symbolizes many things around the world. For one, it is considered to represent the cycle of life and the beginning of spring. In Rome, green represents the color of Venus, the goddess of love and beauty.
