Peridot - Faceted


Beautiful, substantial faceted green Peridot necklace in a classic 925 sterling silver setting.

Peridot is most often found in jewellery, with records of it being mined for this use going back some four thousand years. It is a very versatile crystal but is perhaps best known metaphysically as an emotional healer, especially where deep hurt is carried in the heart.  Wearing or working with a piece helps us to understand the lessons of painful relationships from a spiritual progression or karmic perspective.  It can enable us to see clearly the reasons we found ourselves in a given situation, helping us to release the pain associated with this experience from our auric body. It can also help those who find themselves continually falling into ‘victim mode’ or for those who suffer from that most destructive of energies, jealousy.
‘Healer heal thyself’, is also a saying appropriate to this lovely and versatile stone. It can help release any negative residual energies picked up during a healing session and when on the healing path, wearing a piece during times of change or transition can also assist with clarifying ones purpose as a healer, in terms of direction and vocation.
Peridot is the gemstone variety of Olivine. Olivine is composed of two minerals: fayalite and forsterite. Fayalite is iron rich and fosterite is magnesium rich. They can be found in many locations world wide including Mogok in Burma, Kohistan in Pakistan, Minas Gersis in Brazil, Eifel in Germany, Chihuahua Mexico and Arizona in the US. The vast majority of commercially available Peridot today, however, comes from Arizona dues to its abundance and, therefore, availability and affordability. The most unusual of all Peridot specimens, however, are those which come from meteorites called ‘pallasites’. Pallasites are a rare type of iron-nickel rich, stoney meteorites containing quite large Peridot crystals – making them truly extraterrestrial!  Only 1% of meteorites found on Earth are pallasites, with only 61 recorded instances to date, accounting for their extreme high value.

Approximate length: 20cm extending to 24cm (top to bottom) with 'lobster claw' clasp fixing
