The Peridot is from a private family-owned mine in San Carlos, Arizona a location famous for high grade Peridot, Emeralds and Aquamarine amongst other gems. Not to be confused with Peridot from the Northern Provinces of China or Vietnam where the quality differs enormously (and the price). We have provenance over the source from the mine in Arizona.
Known as the stone of compassion, peridot is believed to bring good health, restful sleep and peace to relationships by balancing emotions and mind. This friendly bright green stone also has the uncanny ability to inspire eloquence and creativity; it also brings delight and good cheer.
Some people place the Peridot inside a small organza bag and keep it under their pillow. Some people add it to their Crystal Grid in their bedroom.
