Green with Envy

Who wouldn’t be just green with envy when they take a look at these magnificent gemstones all sporting the green of money. The word green means “grow” as in grass and is filled with the promise of youth and energy. When applied to envy and jealousy, we can thank Shakespeare for the green-eyed monster as described in The Merchant of Venice. Now, it is aligned with money and prosperity.

Green Diamonds

Just like the red diamonds we talked about last week, these are also very rare. However, you have a better chance of finding a green diamond than a red one. The diamond is a gemstone associated with the April baby.

Green Garnet

Another more traditionally red gemstone, the green garnet is one of those unusual finds. They are part of the andradite species and can be narrowed down even further to the demantoid, which happens to be one of the most expensive garnet. The garnet is a birthstone for January and associated with Aquarius.

Green Tourmaline

The most common tourmaline that we see is the watermelon stone, but a truly green stone like the chrome tourmaline is a deep rich green that is almost reminiscent of the
Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz.

Green Tourmaline


The gemstone peridot is derived from the olivine mineral. It only  comes in green, but it can have a variety of shades of green. It has a luster and is the August birthstone.

Green Idocrase

In addition to these hard to find stones, we have the ever popular jades, emeralds, jaspers, agates and turquoise for our jewelry designs.

There is no reason to be jealous when you can own these beautiful greens for yourself. Buy them today!
