Dating back to ancient Egypt, Peridot was a favorite of Cleopatra, who wore the stone for its beauty and to ward off evil spirits. According to legend, the Queen's emeralds were actually Peridot crystals, which share a similar aesthetic to the highly prized jewel. Known as the poor man's Emerald because of its less expensive price, the Peridot crystal meaning can be traced back to the volcanic areas of Hawaii on the island of Oahu, where tiny Peridot grains can still be found washed upon the shore. According to ancient folklore, these pieces of Peridot represent the tears of Pele, the goddess of the elements. Created in a fiery pit of lava millions of years ago, the Peridot crystal gets its olive to lime green colors from olivine, a type of mineral made up of iron, silicate, and magnesium.
Often called the study stone, Peridot crystal healing properties are also known to increase mental focus by making the mind more receptive to learning new things. It was also believed by the Romans to be a wonderful medicine for depression. Keep a Peridot stone in your pocket or wear it as jewelry and use it as your daily antidepressant that protects you from negative energy while bolstering a sense of self-worth and motivation. Always stay in the direction of the light with Peridot, the feel good stone in the world of crystal healing.

- Inclusions are present in all but the finest and most expensive gemstones. Inclusions and other clarity characteristics differentiate natural gemstones from lab-grown gemstones, and can in fact greatly enhance a gem's color and beauty. Inclusions make each gemstone unique and are responsible for many fine colors and phenomena in the world of gems. Without them, there would be no fine Kashmir blue sapphire, no Burmese star ruby, and no cat's eye chrysoberyl.

We take close up photographs to show you every detail, but even very noticeable inclusions might be invisible to the naked eye or might look different in person.
