Description: These are tiny peridot mineral specimen formations that still remain within their host rock, and are scattered amongst their surface.
The shade and depth of green color present in peridot is dependent on the proportion of iron present in the stone, and the deeper the green, the smaller the amount of iron that is present.
Peridot resonates with the heart chakra and protects the aura to allow for new beginnings. Peridot helps to alleviate feelings of anger, jealousy, and resentment. Peridot enhances healing in the physical and spiritual world. Legend says that if the gem is set in gold, the stone will develop its full potential as a talisman and will have the power to eradicate terrors of the night such as fearsome visions and nightmares.
Peridot has been long considered a powerful aid to repairing and maintaining friendship and, supposedly, it frees the mind of envious thoughts that can damage and strain relationships. It has also been used to protect believers from the evil eye.
