Squaring the circle was a problem proposed by ancient geometers. It dealt with constructing a square equal in area to a given circle - a problem incapable of a purely geometric solution. The meaning of the phrase is to do something that is considered to be impossible.
Emerald is the birthstone for the month of May and is known as the stone of “love and success“. In metaphysical circles, the stone is said to bring in abundance, growth, peace, harmony, patience, love, fidelity and honesty. It’s also said to sensitize the wearer to intuitive ideas and creativity particularity within the arts.
An emerald’s crystal structure forms in systems of hexagons. Hexagons are known to be one of the most stable shapes in nature.
As documented in ancient writings, when an emerald is heated it will sweat or expel water. This has led past civilization to infer that Emeralds are sensitive to a wearer’s emotions and energy, expelling negativity and acting a guide.
Emerald gemstones were mined in Egypt as early as 330 BC, but some estimate that the oldest emeralds are 2.97 billion years old. Cleopatra was known for her love and possession of Emeralds throughout her reign. On the other side of the world, the Muzo Indians of Colombia had well-hidden and prized emerald mines. These mines were so hidden, it took the Spanish conquistadors nearly twenty years to find them.
