Currently identified as the birthstone for August, Peridot was once considered to be a gem of spring due to its beautiful olive green colour. It was a symbol of luck and success and was believed to have been ruled by the planet Jupiter.
On a physical level, peridot helps to balance the endocrine system, especially the adrenal glands. It also supports the digestive system to assimilate nutrients and assists the gall bladder, spleen, liver and pancreas to function optimally.
On an emotional level, peridot helps dissipate negative patterns and vibrations that interfere with the ability to move forward in life. As a stone of transformation, peridot is excellent for dealing with issues of addiction as well as emotional feelings related to guilt, fear and self doubt.
Spiritually, peridot has the ability to expand one’s ability to receive from the Universe on all levels of life. It is attuned to spiritual truth and helps to bring the physical dimension of physical reality into alignment with inner truth. It activates the energies of the third and fourth chakras reminding us that love and will combined together create feelings of worthiness and connection to Divinity.
