Just Reward

Survive winter trials,
Spring shall reward persistence
Colorful rebirth

Green Emerald Birth

Emerald_in_a_quartz_and_pegmatite_matrix
Created from unlikely conditions
Her rarity is assured
Visible fractures and inclusions are
Evidence of distress and legacy
Contributing to her unique
Multifaceted formation
Hard yet fragile
Teeming with life renewed
Destined to perpetual rebirth
