August Birthstone: Peridot!

Peridot is one of the most stunning green gems that can be found in nature. This is one of the very oldest precious stones, with examples dating back to at least 1500 B.C. Most of the ancient peridot stones were found on Topazos Island in the Red Sea, and Egyptians valued them very highly. It is believed that many of Cleopatra’s “emeralds” were actually peridot. Although mining of these gems has occurred on the island for centuries, its’ location was actually lost for a period of time, making the stones even more valuable.

Peridot is an incredibly emotional stone, and can help the wearer to become more compassionate and understanding. It helps to connect people to the energy of those around them, allowing them to become more attuned to their emotional needs. It helps to amplify the feelings of positive emotions such as love and happiness, so that the wearer gets to experience these so much more vividly.

Peridot’s strongest healing properties are strongly tied to the mind. This stone is great at reducing levels of stress, fear, anxiety and depression, by getting rid of the negative emotional states, and replacing them with more positive emotions. It is also great for those who suffer from exhaustion or chronic lethargy, as its energising properties can help you to feel invigorated, no matter what you are going through. It can also help with chronic sleep conditions such as insomnia. It is believed that peridot helps you to fall asleep and then protects you as you sleep, so that you wake fully rested and ready for the day.

And as always, don’t forget yourselves! You deserve it…
