Healing Crystal Handbook: Peridot

Oh, magnificent Peridot. Connected to the Sun, to Spring, renewal and fertility. Sacred in Ancient Egypt to Ra, the Sun God, and Isis, the Mother Goddess. Believed in Ancient Rome to ward off jealous hangers-on, and thus given to high-ranking officials to wear (probably in the form of rings); and symbolic to Ancient Christians of youth and purity.

You’re spot on about Peridot and Nature. I find talking to my house plants so much easier when I ask one of my Peridot pendants for help. I mean, I can do it alone – especially with my Zebra Plant, which is very talkative for a life-form lacking in the equipment for speech we ourselves have – but Peridot (or Emerald) is a great facilitator. I have two Peridot pendants; one is a cabochon-cut solitaire stone mounted above a silver-plated Triquetra symbol; the other is an eight-stone cluster of Chinese Peridot, each stone being about 4mm long and pear-faceted, the whole strongly resembling a cluster of leaves on a tree and weighing in at 3.5 carats. Both were gifts: the cabochon was an Anniversary present from my in-laws, and the pear-faceted cluster was a birthday gift from my husband. I’m pretty sure the cluster pendant’s luck has been augmented, with me being an August baby, and it being the August gemstone, gifted to me in August. The cabochon developed a rainbow when it had been with me for about a fortnight, which I know usually means the stone is happy and where it’s meant to be; but it also means that some caution is needed with that Peridot, because of course a rainbow in a crystal means an internal fracture, and thus a weak spot.

Love and Light to all.

Thank you Ceida for the most comprehensive and enlightening information about Peridot, my birthstone. I have never
been so engrossed and kept interested as I was whilst reading your knowledgeable and expert discussion of the crystal Peridot, no doubt of the other crystals as well. That was so refreshing and I feel that I have actually learned
a great deal. I am interested in stones, all kinds of and I do collect them. I have not gone to the extent of using them
for esoteric purpose but I spend a lot of time just gazing and feeling them. Thank you enormously, Angie.
