Emerald is the green form of Beryl and it is a rich, vibrant green crystal with occasional tints of blue-green or yellow-green. It may also contain black veins and patches of matrix. The crystal can range from transparent (noteably in gemstones) to opaque, and has a glassy luster. Emeralds are brittle and many contain cracks or flaws when tumbled.
Historically, Emerald was known as an antidote to poisons.
Emerald is associated with the Heart Chakra and blissful love. It is, without doubt, the strongest example of the healing green ray energy.
