Using Your Emerald Part 1
Whether you wish to invoke the goddess Artemis, protector of women, or simply soothe overstrained eyes, emerald will prove a very effective and beneficial stone.
The Truth Stone
Emerald was known as a revealer of truth, and illusions and enchantments were thought to be ineffective or dispersed around its purity. If you have doubts about something you have been told, and desires to find out if it’s true, try this old spell.
- Put an emerald or a piece of emerald jewellery under your tongue, and meditate upon the information you have bene given.
- If the emerald gives you a strong feeling that the person has told you a lie, trust your feelings of intuition.
- Likewise, if the stone seems to build up some heat in your mouth, it is thought to indicate the emerald’s displeasure at the absence of truth.
An ancient method for revealing a lie involved putting an emerald under your tongue. If the stone heated up this indicated untruths.
