Peridot Meaning and healing Properties

Introduction to Peridot

Peridot is a gem-quality olivine mineral. People who travel to volcanic rock areas can often bring back some rocks that are wrapped and inlaid with olivine. Perodot is one of the important indicators in volcanic activity. Peridot can also be found in certain meteorites. Peridot was first discovered on an island in the Red Sea and was named “Topazus”. The Greeks named Chrysolite “Chrysolite”. This name is still used for some particularly translucent peridot crystals. In ancient times, peridot was considered to have the effect of dispelling evil spirits and exorcising demons, and was of high value, especially when it was inlaid on gold.
