Hi, lovelies, welcome to WiccaNow. In my previous posts, I discussed the amazing benefits of amethyst, sodalite, rose quartz and emerald as well as a post on how to cleanse your crystals and how to make crystal water. Continuing on with our exploration of the wonderful world of crystals, I thought today we’d feature peridot, one of my favourite green gemstones!
Crystals are divine gifts and sacred tools from mother earth that assist us in transformation, growth and healing. Each crystal holds special energy that can assist us. As we connect to a crystal and its energy, it allows us to align and connect to the same healing energy that exists in all of us. So let’s discuss the unique benefits of peridot!
Peridot Mythology and History
Peridot is a powerful all-over healing crystal which assists us on all levels. Peridot is a positive energy stone that helps to attract abundance. Sometimes called a ‘poor man’s emerald’, peridot has a luminous green colour and is formed from silicon, iron and magnesium. On a spiritual level, peridot can help us to release unwanted emotional baggage, help to overcome issues around fear of commitment, increase the feeling of gratitude and help us to connect with nature spirits. Peridot has long been recognised for its healing powers and can be found in ancient Egyptian jewellery dated from the early 2nd millennium BC. Ancient Romans were also fond of the stone and gave it the nickname of ‘Emerald of the Evening’.
