The emerald is best known as a stone of both spiritual love and spiritual healing, and is the stone most frequently recommended for the "wounded healer" (healers who take on their clients' issues or who don't focus enough on their own healing).

In several cultures the emerald was the symbol for fertilizing rain. In the Christian faith it is the symbol of faith and hope. Since ancient times the emerald has signified life, love, religion and healing powers. It is the sacred stone of the goddess Venus. It was thought to preserve love and has long been the symbol of hope.
