Healing Love: Peridot

Peridot is my birthstone. It is said to be a healing stone for love relationships. It's a green stone that's said to heal that little green monster that rears it's head in relationships. Jealousy and anger. Grrrl... Peridot increases confidence and self-assuredness. It is known as a friendly stone. It will also help us to visualize the epitome of our physical health and help us to see why we were put on this earth. January is an excellent time to pick some up since we think about our physical health and getting our lives together more in this month than in other months. However, I read you shouldn't use Peridot if you are confused or afraid, as it brings toxins to the surface.

I've asked my husband to buy me a Peridot the next time he gets me a wedding ring because I am done with Diamonds. I have nothing against Diamonds per se, it's the manner in which they are obtained that bothers me. If I had known at the time that people in Africa were losing their lives and limbs over Diamonds, I wouldn't have one now. I know, I know, I know they say there is a such thing as conflict-free diamond, but I don't buy it. Apparently, Oprah and Ludacris have something in common, despite their public snubbing and criticism of one another, it's Diamonds.

He wears a Diamond encrusted Africa Pendant (yes, I am aware of the irony)

and she wears the biggest pair of diamond studs, dangles,and hoops she can find. Not to worry though, I am sure they are both making sure they are wearing "conflict-free Diamonds."

(Stepping off the soap box, and getting back on the subject). Anyway, if you want to some healing in your love live, some more confidence or if you were born in August, give Peridot a try. It's a friendly stone!

Peridot increases confidence and self-assuredness... uh, honey, you don't need no peridot. But you are wonderfully friendly and you get your health freak on when you want to. Are you sure I haven't bought you a peridot rock already??? Well I guess this is my all to public valentines day HINT!!! Jewelry Stores here I come.

Yes, honey you have bought me a peridot ring. It's a pinky ring. I was thinking more of a wedding ring, but you don't need to run out for Valentine's Day to do that wait until we renew our vows... visitors please forgive this public discussion of husband and wife business, LOL!

That is a beautiful stone =).

Yes, sadness for the diamond. Its my birthstone and I only have one diamond ring.

Corruption is so widespread that we are all searching for "free trade" everything.

Hope hubby gets you that ring... you must share when he does

I love peridot...the green color just makes me think of nature :)

There is a new, rare, and sustainably mined gem on the market called Zultanite. It actually looks similar to a Peridot, but changes color. Zultanite shifts from pale green to champagne to raspberry pink in various lighting. It is a gorgeous alternative to diamonds.

Secondly, for those of you who love diamonds despite their history might be excited to know that you can have beautiful, sparkley diamonds that you can feel good about. Genuine diamonds are now being grown (limited quantities) in labs. They are identical to their mined counterparts, but have almost no social and environmental impact.

C5 sells both Zultanite and lab-grown diamonds. Check us out at C5 specializes in custom creations, but also hosts a growing online boutique.

@Meghan Thnx so much for reminding us of the new lab grown Diamonds. I forgot all about those, but they are certainly a great alternative!

My birthstone is a Peridot and I've always loved them. Had no idea it meant all these things. Thanks for the info!

We have Diamonds here in Canada that I'm pretty sure are conflict-free. Partly because we have so many rules and regulations here and we have strong humanitarian views, I really doubt they are mined the same way they are in Africa. Might be worth taking a look at if you did want a diamond again.

That is a beautiful stone. I love it. Funny how your husband gave his two cents on the topic.
