GEMSTONES ADVENT CALENDAR-EMERALD
Emerald is the green variety of Beryl and the colour is due to the presence of chromium.
Its formation is in hexagonal crystals.
Green relates to the heart chakra. Emerald can help the individual to open up and soften their heart towards past trauma. Natrum Muriaticum keeps dwelling on unpleasant experiences, whereas Emerald is completely closed, they do not want to “go there”.
Green is colour of growth and the Emerald was the stone of Isis in ancient Egyptian culture. So this is often a spiritual transition, and can be a route to acceptance and servitude more than an escape to try again. Equally after a time of sanctuary the person, more strengthened, may break free of the influence of past traumas by taking themselves away from the situation permanently.

This remedy is very much needed when we are in a situation when we cannot speak the truth, for fear of reprisal. Whenever truth and rights are denied, people feel trapped and cannot speak their mind. Think East Germany or any other place where dictatorships run countries.
Repression and imprisonment.
The provers reported dreams about being sold as slaves, imprisoned and physically abused.
