MAY 2001
Hints and tips for Spring...

Celebrate the arrival of Spring with the color Green:

Emerald is the birthstone for the month of May; a variety of the mineral species Beryl; it is grass green in color.
Emeralds are characteristically semi-translucent and even opaque.  Before being cut & polished, many emeralds looks quite undistinguished; a lump of greenish rock.   Flawless emeralds are very rare.

Emeralds have lots of mystic properties; Egyptians believed emeralds stood for fertility and rebirth; emeralds were used to treat eye diseases; many people believed holding an emerald under your tongue would allow the future to be seen; emeralds are also supposed to strengthen memory and fight against evil spells.
