Emerald is the green version of the mineral Beryl, it was considered to be the talisman of the goddess Venus and represents faith, goodness and kindness. Emerald varies in color from light to deep green and derives from the presence of chromium and/or vanadium replacing some of the aluminum in the mineral's structure.
