BIRTHSTONE - Peridot
BIRTH FLOWER - The Gladiolus or Poppy
Peridot was believed to keep away evil spirits in ancient times. It is still a protective stone for the aura.
Peridot is a powerful cleanser; releases and neutralizes toxins on all levels; purifies the mind and the subtle and physical bodies; opens, cleanses and activates the heart and solar plexus chakras; releases old baggage; clears burdens, guilt or obsessions.
Peridot teaches that holding on to the past, or people, is counterproductive; shows how to detach yourself from outside influences; look to your higher energies for guidance.
