The name peridot derives from the Arabic word for "gem".   Ancients believed that peridot was formed in a sun's explosion and contained its healing power when it fell to Earth.  The gem has long been associated with the sun and is said to carry inner radiance that drives away the forces of darkness.  

Peridot is known as a stone of transformation.  It is said to aid the wearer in recognizing their own mistakes and moving forward rapidly in therapeutic sessions.  It helps to dissipate repeating negative patterns and remove blockages.  Peridot allows for the renewal of heart and mind, leading to a greater sense of well-being.  Use it to help you grow to achieve your full potential.
