This is normally petal green or dark green in colour. Green for a man signifies joy and hope; for a woman, ambition and change.Emerald is a hot gem. It increases intelligence and brain power, removes and cures fickle-mindedness, loss of memory, stammering, fear from souls and spirits, cools the harsh speech. Emerald is believed to cure eye problems, aid the liver, and guard against fits and convulsions.One of the interesting observations about Emerald is that it is not prescribed for newly-wed couples. It is said that newly married couples should not use it as it impairs conjugal happiness due to reduction in sexual desires. Once the relationship is underway, wear emerald to protect it, enhance fertility and ease childbirth when that baby comes.It is also useful for curing diarrhoea, dysentery, gastritis, peptic ulcer, asthma, insomnia, heart troubles, etc. Emerald should be used in gold of 3, 5, 7 or 10 grams on 4th finger of right hand on Wednesday.
