Peridot is a warm, happy and friendly stone. It increases and attracts wealth, prosperity, health, joy, and emotional well-being. It also helps dissipate negative patterns and old vibrations that play over and over, keeping one from realizing they are deserving of success. Guards against destructive jealousy caused by betrayal in past relationships and personal fears that we are unlovable, rather than relating to the present relationship. A wise money gemstone. In modern healing, it is considered very effective in amplifying Reiki energies.
According to ancient folklore, Peridot symbolizes the tears of Hele the goddess of fire and volcanoes. Created in a fiery pit of lava millions of years ago, the Peridot crystal gets its olive to lime green colors from olivine, a type of mineral made up of iron, silicate, and magnesium, which are also found in stardust. The Romans used to wear Peridot in gold rings to bring peaceful sleep and get rid of reccuring nightmares.
Peridot's affirmation is: "I am open to receiving good in my life. I wish to see others around me receive good and I am joyful for them."
