Emerald is Green Beryl.

The stone of successful love.

Emeralds open the heart chakra  to receive love in all aspects of life.  Let go of negativity and create positive outcomes. Emeralds help us to find strength.  A favorite gem since ancient days in Egypt, it was also sacred to the Aztec and Inca.  Emeralds are associated with detoxing the body.

Bloodstone is used to ground out negative energy and remove blockages.  It can increase strength and energy to combat fatigue.  Bloodstone enhances the functions of the mind and boosts creativity.

Called Heliotrope by  the ancient Greeks, this stone was thought to reflect the setting sun dropping into the ocean.  This connects it to the Greek God Helios.

Pliny the Elder called it a stone of invisibility.
