More About Peridot:

Peridot (pronounced either PEAR-a-dot or PEAR-a-doe) is the gemstone variety of the mineral olivine. It is the birthstone for August.

This bright green gemstone promotes personal growth and supports energetic healing. It helps to restore balance among your body, mind, and spirit so that you feel more happiness and harmony in your life. Peridot helps to support you as you determine what’s most meaningful to you and what truly feels important in your life. It reveals any things that have been consuming your energy and mental bandwidth that are actually trivial or unimportant so that you can create space for more bliss and joy.


Peridot Lore:

The lore of peridot has remained remarkably consistent through time. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and other cultures associated this stone with the sun. Through the dark ages, medieval times, and even into modern times, many have claimed that this solar association made Peridot the most effective crystal for protection against negative energy.

Various writers throughout time have recommended Peridot for necromancers, people plagued by hauntings, and even those who were thought to be possessed by a spirit. It was also said to be a most effective stone to use to protect people against frightening things that happen at night — anything from nightmares and night terrors to sleep paralysis, which was thought to be the work of a creature called the Night Hag.

Some historical sources recommended that you wear a bead of it strung on the hair of a donkey around your left arm for general protection from dark forces, or set in a donkey’s jaw to make a kind of weapon against any kind of “devil.” (One must wield this club with the left hand). If Peridot is set in metal, it was recommended that the metal should be gold, which also has solar associations. Modern crystal practitioners still recommend peridot for healers and people with psychic abilities, because of its power to protect them from negative energy that may be attached to other people.

Working with Peridot:

Set a vase of full freshly cut flowers in a prominent place within your sacred space and Place a piece of Peridot inside the vase. This will help you facilitate a connection to the earthy, beautiful energy of the blossoms you’ve included. Make some time to be present with the flowers to connect with their energy and show your gratitude for all that Mother Nature shares with you.

    I was drawn to a a small piece of peridot in a jewellers in Egypt. So much so I had a white gold ring designed and made using it.
    I also have jewellery in silver containing turquoise my birth stone.
    I have a fair amount of Jewell in silver containing crystals brought over many years. Then started to collect crystals that I am drawn to when finances allow.
    We have found a garden centre that sells pieces as garden ornaments, although not of a great grade still pretty much have drawing power.
