Emerald is your birthstone. The name Emerald comes from the Greek smaragdos meaning "green stone" and probably referred, in fact, not just to Emeralds,
but to all or many green gems. Emerald boasts a great deal of folklore. It
was used as a burnt offering, a symbol of St. John, and supposedly was a
poison antidote, a cure for fevers and epilepsy, eye relief (due to the
exceptional color), a cure for dysentery and leprosy, a cure for ophthalmia
and bleeding, a cure for stomach problems (when laid on the stomach), and a
good laxative. For Taurus wearing an Emerald will insure loyalty and improve
memory. Emerald is the anniversary gemstone for the 20th, 35th and 55th year of marriage.
Sapphire is your zodiac stone. Prized since ancient times, Sapphire has been called the Gem of the Heavens. Persians believed the earth rested on an

thought to give the wearer strengthened vision, including visions of the
future. When touched against the eye, it removed impurities and restored
sight. Sapphire was believed to halt black magic and evil spirits. It was held to be a symbol of truth and constancy.
Garnet is your talisman stone. The name Garnet is derived from the Latin word granatum (pomegranate); this alludes to the Garnet's color and
seed-like crystal formation. Garnet has been treasured for thousands of
years. This lovely red stone was once thought to cure fever and promote good
health. Garnet was worn for protection when traveling.
