MAY

Those born in May get to claim the emerald as their representative birthstone. Born in the heart of spring, May babies gain the benefits of this birthstone: foresight, good fortune and lasting youth.





The word “emerald” literally means “green” in Greek. Emerald’s color can range from light green to a deep, rich green-blue. The deeper the green of an emerald, the more value it has. The most expensive emeralds are the rare green-blue color. Source: AmericanGemSociety.org.




May is the fifth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and the third of seven months to have a length of 31 days. May is a month of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.
