Peridot, in shades of olive, is one of the few gemstones that forms in only one color. Beautifully faceted, it evokes the lateness of summer and the onset of fall, as leaves morph from green to gold and hang like jewels in the sunlight. It is a crystal of warmth and well-being, mentally stimulating and physically regenerating. Known as the stone of compassion, Peridot is believed to bring good health, restful sleep, and peace to relationships by balancing emotions and mind. This friendly bright green stone also has the uncanny ability to inspire eloquence and creativity. It carries the gift of inner radiance, sharpening the mind and opening it to new levels of awareness and growth, helping one to recognize and realize one’s destiny and spiritual purpose.
Peridot is a protective stone; it keeps away evil and promotes detoxification. It releases burdens, and clears guilt and obsessions in order to heal and help in letting go of old destructive patterns. It's a very beautiful and useful stone to wear.
