About four thousand years ago, emeralds were mined in Egypt. According to legend, the Egyptian mines were visited by Queen Cleopatra, and since then they have been called by her name. The emerald mines of Cleopatra were actively exploited until the middle of the 13th century, and later were abandoned.
Catholics have a legend that the emerald fell from Lucifer's head when he was expelled from paradise. Then a chalice was carved out of stone - the Holy Grail, from which Jesus Christ drank at the Last Supper. After the crucifixion of the Son of God, Joseph of Arimathea collected his blood into a cup, and the Holy Grail acquired miraculous power. Everyone who drank from it lived happily for many years.
An old magic book said that if you look closely at an emerald, you can see in it all the secrets of the past and present, learn the future or consider what is happening at a great distance.
According to ancient beliefs, an emerald is a stone of wisdom, composure and hope. A person wearing an emerald jewelry is insured against misfortunes. Emeralds attract wealth and bring peace to the owner. These stones help in scientific research and philosophy classes.
People who have reached spiritual perfection can emphasize this with the radiance of an emerald, since the stone has a powerful energy.
