Peridot

A guide for the history, meaning, metaphysical uses, purposes, crystal healing, and properties of the great green stone.

Peridot is a pale green, olive green, lime green, or yellow-green colored gemstone which can be are formed through the fires of molten rock and brought to the surface by violent behavior in the Earth's upper mantle.


 

Stone for Light and Solar Energy

A stone that has been loved and admired for its beauty and relationship with the sun. Because the stone was tied to the sun, a celestial and divine body, it was associated with getting rid of nightmares and negative spirits or negative energy. Today, many still associate peridot with a stone of positivity and banishing all fears. Historically, peridot was admired by a mix of civilisations. Though sometimes it found home in the halls of conquerors if it could not be acquired by trade.   


Us and the Stone

Peridot was often set with gold. This makes sense, as the sun is seen as a holy golden body of radiant light and this can be reflected with the divinity and nobility of gold. Peridot is associated with the month of August as a birthstone, its partner being sardonyx. It was once the birthstone of September. Rarely it is considered such in America and Britain, though some parts of the world still maintain that peridot is the rightful birthstone of September, most notably Russians, Jews, Arabs, and Italians. 

Peridot is one gemstone of Spring and is the gemstone of Egypt. The stone's planetary influence is, of course, the Sun. Sometimes people associate peridot with Mercury and Venus, however. In a dream, peridot may symbolise good health; alternatively, caution. If a vulture is represented on peridot, it was believed to have the power to control demons. This often manifests today as the control or banishing of evil forces. Because of the stone's power to drive away fears, it was a good choice for keeping soldiers stalwart and unwavering in battle.
