Marble and Emerald

Marble is a hard crystalline metamorphic form of limestone, typically white with mottlings or streaks of color, that is capable of taking a polish and is used in sculpture and architecture.

Marble is believed to provide clarity, self-control and stability both physically and emotionally. It is used as a symbol of purity and immortality.

Emerald is a bright green precious stone consisting of a chromium-rich variety of beryl. Called the “Stone of Successful Love,” Emerald opens and nurtures the heart and the Heart Chakra. Its soothing energy provides healing to all levels of the being, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love.
