Birthstone Series: All About Peridot This August!
Did you know that August is the month of Peridot? This eye-catching gemstone is often referred to as the ‘evening emerald’, as it is also green in colour, and can sometimes be mistaken for an emerald. Some historians claim that Queen Cleopatra’s collection of emerald jewels were actually peridots.
With its healing properties, the peridot is recommended to help sooth conflict in a romantic relationship. It helps to restore harmony and bring positive energy, while also protecting the heart. Peridot is also known for helping open the heart with its energetic properties, given to this stone because of its vibrant colour, while also attracting abundance and good luck.
The origins of this particular gemstone is quite interesting, as it comes from lava beneath the earths crust, which there are only two gemstones that this applies to; peridot and diamonds. It has also been suggested that some types of peridot have extra-terrestrial origins (YES… you read that right). This common belief comes from the fact that peridots are also found in meteorites, making both of its origins sound very powerful, therefore peridot is believed to have a powerful energy connected to it.
