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!
