“I would have never realized the importance of sight until or unless the eye issue struck me,” told Sally Mathew, a crystal or gemstone enthusiast like me whom I met during my flight to Turkey. At the age of seven, Sally was diagnosed with a rare degenerative eye disease called Stargardt’s disease. In this disease, the part of the retina called macula starts getting damaging resulting into loss of vision. Her eyesight went from being perfectly normal to near about 20%.
It was not yet dark, but it’s as getting there. Nature, the books, the surroundings, all that fascinated her with different colors started appearing pale and dull to her. She just could not understand why the rods and cones of her maculae were degrading and why she is not able to see anything clearly. The only fear she had all this while was of going to a blind school and maybe of becoming a telephonist or piano tuner, which generally poor vision children aspire to do to earn their bread.
Believing in the power of Emerald and visiting the ophthalmologist regularly, the much-needed relief came by the age of nine. Like all other children, even she started living a normal life now. The things were fine and getting right but guess the scars of struggling with darkness all that while left her sad and lonely.
The idea of buying the emerald to cure her sight issue was of her Mother’s, and she only had trust in this stone to alleviate the sadness in Sally. “Without fail, I kept the emerald with me throughout and guess now when I think; I feel that it just not helped me regaining my sight but brought me infinite patience all this while. It healed me at every level, infused freshness, compassion, vitality, and love back to my life. I am in love with this stone and always wear an emerald ring in my left hand.” 🙂 🙂
