Pantone has announced that emerald is the color of 2013. What Pantone don't know is that is that emerald has been my color for years. It's my favorite color, and it just happens to be my birthstone as well. 

Here's a little background on emerald...
The emerald is  a symbol of faith and hope, the stone of prophecy as a tranquilizer for the troubled mind to bring the wearer reason of wisdom and also to preserve love. In many cultures it was said to give your lover an emerald to stay faithful. The emerald was also used to help heal the heart, add balance and harmony and rejuvenates the soul.

"Lively. Radiant. Lush... A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony." -Pantone.com
