May Birthstone Colour
If you were born in May, your birthstone colour is emerald.
There are a lot of myths associated with the colour emerald. At one time, people believed that it could prevent epilepsy, stop bleeding, cure dysentery and fever, and protect the wearer from panic. The magnificent green colour was also said to rest and relieve the eye. The ancient Romans dedicated it to the goddess Venus because the green emerald symbolized the reproductive forces of nature. Early Christians saw it as a symbol of the resurrection of Christ and in the Middle Ages, emeralds were believed to hold the power to foretell the future.
About Swarovski Crystal
Swarovski Crystals are a man-made product of raw materials using natural minerals and pure quartz sand. The minerals and sand are combined and fired for an undisclosed period of time. Once removed from firing, they go through a very slow cooling process. The slow cooling process reduces flaws and imperfections in the final product. These speciality crystals are full lead crystal because they have a lead content of 32%. Even though lead is a known toxin, the wearing of crystal jewellery containing lead does not pose any risks.
To create crystal glass that lets light refract in a rainbow spectrum, Swarovski coats some of its products with special metallic chemical coatings. For example, Aurora Borealis, or “AB”, gives the surface a rainbow appearance.
