Coloured Gemstones Guide- Green
Nope, not envy – green gems represent unfounded ambition, childish delight, and change if worn by women and joyousness, transitory hope, and the decline of friendship (hmmm…) if worn by a man.
Peridot: Chartreuse. Peridot purportedly possesses many powers, including the ability to free the mind of envious thoughts, aid friendship, and protect the wearer from the evil eye (if worn on the left arm) and nightmares. The colour of young green grass, peridot was recast by Hawaiian legend as the divine tears wept by Pele, goddess of the volcano. Sapphire: Yellow green to blue green to grey green. Tourmaline: All shades of green. Garnet: Turns out they don’t just come in red. Tsavorite is yellow green to blue green; Demantoid is yellow green to emerald green. Emerald: Yellow green to blue green. May’s deep green birthstone symbolizes fertility, rebirth, and springtime. Once a favourite gem of Cleopatra, the emerald is believed to endow the wearer with faithfulness, unchanging love, and the ability to forecast the future. It is also regarded as an amulet for good fortune. Alexandrite: Bluish to blue green in daylight; violet red in artificial light. Diamond: Blue green to yellow green to grey green.
Knot Note: The proud owner of this gorgeous Zoe Pook ring had her boyfriends fingerprint etched on the inside of this band. Seriously romantic.
