Emerald This emerald gemstone began a new area of essence-making for us. While a few of the orchid essences have been made with gemstones accompanying the orchid, we had nevertheless never made a gemstone essence by itself. But this emerald had such clear and wonderful energy that we decided in this instance it would be appropriate. Awakening, brightening, and clarifying of the mind. Opens one to higher energies & clears the brow & crown chakras. Stimulates the mind & develops discernment. Awakens yet also calms the heart chakra. Harmony and mental awareness are fostered by this essence.
