"The Stone of Cleansing Power"
Peridot is the birthstone of August. It is also one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color: an olive-green. As a powerful cleanser, Peridot neutralizes toxins on all levels, alleviating jealousy, resentment and spitefulness. It helps the mind to release "old baggage" by looking back on the past to find the gift in your experiences. It shows you how to forgive yourself and move on. Peridot comes from the USA, Hawaii, Brazil, Egypt, and Ireland.
