More than 7 billion people live on the planet Earth. Each one of them has the fundamental right to feel happy, but not every one of them knows it. Therefore, to recognize “happiness” as a fundamental human right, in 2013 the United Nations declared March 20th as the International Day of Happiness. This year’s theme is Happier Together, which encourages us to connect by what we have in common rather than what makes us different. But, how do people believe yellow gemstones can make them happier?
