Diamond and Emerald are Taurus lucky stones. Actually, the lucky gemstone of an individual is truly associated with the month of birth rather than the Sign under which a person was born.
The lucky gem for Taurus individuals born in April is the diamond. They share this fortunate jewel with those Aries individuals who were also born during the same month while the lucky gem for Taurus individuals born in May is the emerald. They also share this fortunate jewel with those Gemini individuals who were also born during the same month.
The original association of a special gem with each month was recorded in the Bible (Exodus 28 and 39). An original Breastplate of Aaron, High Priest of the Hebrews, was said to be made by Moses in 1250 BC, according to instructions he received during his forty days spent in the mountains. The twelve gems in the breastplate were later linked with the Signs of the Zodiac and later still, associated with the months in the year.

The diamond, a sparkling precious stone, white or blue in colour, is sometimes referred to as the king of crystals (or king stone) and stone of invulnerability. Traditionally, this jewel is the symbol of purity and innocence, and considered to be most lucky when worn on the left side of the body. The hardest of all precious gems (and the hardest substance known in nature), it is a crystalline form of carbon. The word diamond is derived from adamas, which is Greek in origin and means "indomitable" or "unconquerable," suggesting the eternity of love. It represents strength, virtue, bravery, fearlessness, invincibility and insight, bestowing these fine attributes upon its wearers.
This stone is said to enhance the wearer with charm and beauty. Physically, it is believed to strengthen the kidneys and reproductive organs and afford protection against severe disease. To dream of diamonds was once thought to be a sure sign of success, wealth and happiness.
The lucky gem for Taurus individuals born in May is the emerald. They share this fortunate jewel with those Gemini individuals who were also born during the same month.
The emerald is a sparkling-green precious stone of the beryl group. Its colour is caused by small amounts of chromium and vanadium, which are enhanced by traces of iron. The highest quality emerald is a transparent grass-green. As one of the most expensive gemstones, it is often more valuable than a diamond. The first emeralds came from the Egyptian desert near the Red Sea. The emerald is a traditional symbol of constancy and true affection. Its name is derived from the Greek word smaragdos, which means "green stone" and it was highly prized by the Ancients as the gemstone of love and rebirth. It is said to give its owner the gift of eloquence.
