Mystique Stone Magic: The Spirit Within!
Emeralds History & Lore
It was known that Emerald was a favorite gem of Cleopatra, the Queen of
Egypt, and the Emerald mine in Upper Egypt, rediscovered a hundred years
ago near the Red Sea, was one of the earliest Emerald occurrences in
the human history. Emeralds also adorned Russian crown jewels. The Irani
State Treasure contains an exquisite collection of Emeralds, as well as
the Emerald tiara of ex-Empress Farah. Shah Jahan, one of the moguls of
India that built the Taj Mahal, loved Emeralds so much that he had
sacred texts inscribed into them and used these gemstones as talismans.
The ancient writings of Veda, the sacred text of Hinduism, testifies to
Emerald as being the “gem of good luck” and the “gem that improves one’s
well-being”. These “Mogul Emeralds”, as they are known today, can be
found in modern museums and collections. Brought To You By Anna's Legacy @ www.annaslegacy.com
