Birthstone Of May

Emerald is regarded as the traditional birthstone for May as well as the traditional gemstone for the astrological signs of Taurus, Cancer and sometimes Gemini. A popular anecdote on emerald was by the 16th-century historian Brantome, who referred to the many impressive emeralds the Spanish under Cortez, had brought back to Europe from Latin America.

In some cultures emerald is the traditional gift for the 55th wedding anniversary. It is also used as a 20th and 35th wedding anniversary stone.
