Generosity and disinterest, gratitude and abundance, may is the month of the emeralds, the stones of love and knowledge.

Since man has memory, the moment of birth has been considered, perhaps, as the most important event in our lives, and of course, it is the beginning of everything. Various elements, such as philosophy and other sciences, have taken this event as the basis for the development of their theories, and have created endless scenarios in which the date of birth determines the direction in which our existence will inevitably lead.

This is how over the centuries, man has incorporated into his knowledge structure, possible explanations of how and why, our lives evolve. Such is the case of some pseudosciences such as astrology or certain beliefs of a theological nature.

In antiquity, astrology and religions dominated much of the cultural terrain, defining everything from political to economic and social factors; and thanks to this accumulation of beliefs, the “scientists” and “representatives of God” of the time, began to relate the different precious stones known, with the events of the daily life of other people.

Thanks to the astrology and the Julian calendar, named after the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, 46 BC, (today we use the Gregorian calendar Pope Gregory XIII), the known gemstones began to be related to the dates of birth, with our personality and our purpose.

But what is its meaning and function?

Birthstones have a direct relationship with the character of each person, and although they are not the ones that define him, they are the ones that represent him and offer him an identity. As for their function, it seems that they help to strengthen our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being.

Bullfighting, born from April 20 to May 20, correspond to emeralds as their birthstones, that is why they are highly used in engagement rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, they are gems that due to their color intense green, they represent mother nature and the spring period, they are a symbol of rebirth and love and their function is to attract abundance, provide balance and patience and are believed to have beneficial effects on health, purify the spirit, ward off negative forces and they give good luck.
