Award of the Phoenix’s Emerald
Pay heed and bear witness to Our words set forth herein, the We, the Baron and Baroness of the Barony of the Sacred Stone do proclaim thus;
For thousands of years the emerald has been sought after, highly valued and proudly displayed by rulers of lands across the world. The presence of an emerald was believed to bring harmony and hope to those ruled, and by stimulating cooperation and understanding, rulers thought the emerald imbued them with clarity and vision to bring growth and renewal to all their people.
It is this same value that we feel toward (recipient) for their irreplaceable and profound contributions to the improvement of these beloved lands. We therefore bestow upon (recipient) the Award of the Phoenix’s Emerald, that all may recognize their high level of worth to our Barony of the Sacred Stone.
Done by our hands this day at (event name) on the (date) day of (month), AS (L) (Being (2015) in the common era)
