Emerald is a gemstone and a variety of the mineral beryl(Be3Al2(SiO3)6) colored green by trace amounts of chromium and sometimes vanadium.[2] Beryl has ahardness of 7.5–8 on the Mohs scale.[2] Most emeralds are highly included, so their toughness (resistance to breakage) is classified as generally poor.

The word "Emerald" is derived (via Old French: Esmeraude and Middle English: Emeraude), from Vulgar Latin: Esmaralda/Esmaraldus, a variant of LatinSmaragdus, which originated in Greek: σμάραγδος (smaragdos; "green gem").

In Hindhi we call it as PANNA (पन्ना) ; In Tamil it is called as MARAGADHAM (மரகதம்).

The Emerald is the sacred stone of the planet Mercury. It is believed to be the "Prince" in the Navargaha portfolio. The Emerald has long been the symbol of hope. It is considered by many, to be the stone of prophecy. For some the Emerald acts as a tranquilizer for a troubled mind. It is said to bring the wearer – reason, wisdom, tolerance and mental stability. It ensures physical, emotional and mental equilibrium, bringing harmony to all areas of ones life.

Wearing Emerald enhances success - especially in trade/ business / agencies and job/careers which involves interacting with people. Sportsmen and creative people (writers, painters, and sculptors) can also benefit from this stone.

The Emerald Gemstone is related to the heart chakra (anahata). It is related to the powerful sphere of love, compassion, well-being and caring. Emeralds are supposed to increase spiritual energies and calm down the disturbed mind. It leads to universal and personal bliss and reduces mental conflicts.

It helps children who are having problems with brain, memory and speech related problems. It also helps to control and cure stammering, fear, amnesia, epilepsy, nervous related problems, fickle mindedness, insomnia and blood pressure. It also removes toxin in the system and is  said to protect us from evil spirits.

When a person has his Mount of Mercury well developed or the corresponding finger fairly long or well set, it is not necessary for him to wear this Gem stone.

Wearing a gemstone after consulting an Astrologer/Palmist/Numerology expert, is advisable. He /she would be able to determine if the gem is really needed for you or not.
