Peridot has also been identified as Olivine or Chrysolite. Most Peridot contains magnesium- rich Forsterite. Its color is caused by the presence of iron ions.

A high-vibrational Heart chakra crystal, Peridot carries a positive energy that is helpful for those undergoing traumatic emotional situations. The strong Heart chakra energies are what give Peridot its ability to bring out unconditional Love and help those who are working to lessen the effects of the ego in their lives.

Peridot can work with both the Heart and Solar-Plexus chakras to affect an understanding of the role relationships play in one’s life, whether romantic, friendly, or otherwise. As such, Peridot is a good crystal to wear or carry during interactions with others. Peridot is also a protective crystal, offering a supportive energy to keep chakras in balance and alignment, especially after any type of energy healing work has been done on the body. These "maintenance" type energies make Peridot exceptional in group situations, offering its upbeat and comforting vibe to all nearby. It is a wonderful crystal to use in increasing Reiki energy.

Peridot is often used to attract money and abundance, especially when placed in the home or a charm bag. Put Peridot in a purse or near a computer to keep from overspending as well as getting the best ‘deal’ on e-commerce sites.

Physically, gemmy Peridot offers deep healing vibrations to the whole body, and can be especially helpful to those recovering from illness or accidents. Specifically, Peridot can relieve allergic reactions, ease problems of the lungs, heart, and stomach, and is believed to assist in childbirth.
