The Egyptians called Peridot the “gem of the sun” because it appeared warm, bright, and transparent.
Many believed that Peridot would protect the wearer from night terrors or could ward off evil spirits. Associated with balance and strength, Peridot brings peace and harmony to your mind and body. It also improves your mood and enhances creativity!
Peridot is the gemstone to celebrate August birthdays and the 16th wedding anniversary.
