Healing Gems? Peridot


I received a Peridot ring from my hubby last Christmas. Well, I selected the ring for him. I don't know why I picked it...the color and beauty of the green gem...with small diamonds around it. The ring looked so pretty on my hand. Sorta similar to this one in the photo. Yesterday, I decided to research care of the gemstone. I found that this stone is one of gems that requires careful care. Good to know, otherwise I might not treat it carefully as I should.


I found that there are interesting other things to know about gemstones. They each have qualities, including mystical, healing, and magical properties.


The Peridot reduces stress, stimulates the mind, and amplifies intuitive awareness. It is commonly used to treat emotional states such as anger, jealousy, and irritation. It's color, as well as the stone, inspires healing, renewal, purification, rebirth and growth. It has the power to heal hurt feelings, and mend damaged relationships. It has been mined for over 3500 years.


Strange as it seems...I have a personal relationship that gives me so much irritation and anger as a primary problem for a long time. I hope that it might help the arthritis in my ring finger (where I wear it). I do know that there is much power in positive thinking and I sure practice that with my thoughts and prayers. Hey, everything helps...right!

I don't to believe any of this for sure, however it is something to think about.
