Peridot Crystals and Mineral SpecimensByminerals
Peridot is a well-known and ancient gemstone. It is a type of silicate mineral. It ranges from beautiful light green to olive-green gemstones. The green color depends on the composition of the iron content. It is one of only two gems found to form on the rock of the mantle above the Earth's crust. The intensity of the color depends on the amount of iron contained in the chemical composition of a periodot
The name 'Peridot' is derived from the Arabic word 'Faridat'. It is sometimes called the 'emerald of the poor' or 'chrysolite'. It is one of the oldest gemstones. Peridot is sometimes called the "Evening Emerald" because it retains its bright color even among artificial lights.
Crystal healers see Peridot as something that eliminates jealousy, resentment, hatred, bitterness, anger, hatred, and greed, and eliminates laziness, apathy, and fatigue. Peridot is mined in the Kilbon Hole in the United States and is found in Australia, Brazil, China, Egypt, Kenya, Mexico, Myanmar (Burma), Norway, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Tanzania.
