Happy Birthday May babies-
Both the modern and the official May birthstone is the Emerald thus the May birthstone color is green. The alternative birthstone for May is traditionally Agate, however in recent times the green gemstone Chrysoprase has been added as an alternative.
Emerald is one of the Zodiac birthstones for Taurus (Apr 21 – May 21), and both Agate and Chrysoprase are Zodiac birthstones for the Gemini (May 22 – Jun 21) star sign.
Other birthday symbols include the birth flowers for May which are Lily of the Valley and Hawthorn.
‘Emerald’ comes from the Greek word “smaragdos” which means “green stone”, and Emeralds are associated with friendship, faithfulness and loyalty.
