Peridot is the gem form of olivine. They are found in some meteorites and in deep rock brought to the surface by volcanoes.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Peridot is associated with the element of Earth and is used in rituals and spells for grounding, prosperity, and protection.

When it comes to correspondences, peridot is linked to the Heart Chakra, making it a powerful crystal for emotional healing and balance. It’s also connected to the zodiac sign of Leo and is said to enhance creativity and self-expression.

Peridot’s healing properties extend to both the body and mind. Physically, it is believed to aid in digestion, boost the immune system, and alleviate stress. Mentally, it can promote clarity, reduce anxiety, and encourage a positive outlook on life.

Proper care and cleansing are essential. You can recharge it under sunlight or moonlight, and cleansing methods include using saltwater, sound, or other crystals like selenite to keep its energy pure and vibrant.
