Peridot Crystal

Home Peridot Crystal


Peridot is a stone of courage and selflessness. It can help you find the strength to take action, as well as be generous with others even when pursuing your own individual destiny!

The ancient Egyptians mined peridot on the Red Sea island of Zabargad and called it the “gem of the sun.” Today this gem is still prized for its restful yellowish green hues and long history.

The color range for peridot is narrow, from a brown-green color to yellowish green to pure green. Yellowish green is the most common peridot color.

The word peridot comes from the Arabic “faridat,” which means “gem.”

Some believed that it protected its owner from “terrors of the night,” especially when it was set in gold. Others strung the gems on donkey hair and tied them around their left arms to ward off evil spirits.

Peridot Crystals and Human Feelings

Peridot is a stone that can help you release negative feelings of stress and anxiety. When we’re carrying around anger or resentment, our whole body becomes tense; this causes headaches as well as lost sleep for those who suffer from it insomnia-like disorder called “tension dreams.” The green gemstone invites us to rid ourselves completely so there’s a lighter feeling afterward – almost like stepping into the sunshine!

By opening yourself up more thoroughly than ever before so they may fill your heart with their powerful energy.  You will experience better health in both body and mind–as well as an increased sense of motivation for any given task at hand. It also helps connect people who are seeking each other across vast distances.


Peridot Crystals and Chakras

The chakras are a person’s internal energy centers and they’re aligned vertically near the spine. Energy enters your body through what we call “head” (heaven) or base(earth). The seven main points of intersection where these forces mingle create different patterns which can be seen as vibrant colors within our own being; each producing its own signature color-coded aura to represent health concerns such as stress levels, moods etc… These vortexes were created so that all might share both physical space.  The chakras are in constant interaction with one another. They cannot really be separated, and serve as a balance to your entire being – both physical aspects like emotions or personality traits but also more abstract ones such as thoughts about yourself (think: beliefs).

Two extra chakras have recently been discovered by ancient yogic studies; the Earth Star Chakra and Soul-Star Chi. I have included a brief description of these in my page for you to learn more about them!


Peridot Crystals and Auric Bodies

  • Physical
  • Etheric
  • Astral
  • Mental
  • Picture


Human beings have seven bodies, one physical and six nonphysical. The six unseen bodies are known as auras.

The physical body and the six nonphysical bodies are interconnected with each other. The health of any or all auras contributes toward the overall physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of a person.

Auras, also known as energy bodies, are affected by all aspects of your life and the energy that feeds them comes from internal and external sources.  You’ll need high-quality prana or chi flowing into them to ensure the health of these energy bodies.

Physical Body

  • this is the body that you live in and is linked to the Base Chakra.

Etheric Body

  • a blueprint for the physical body and is made up of vibrating energy.  It’s linked to the Sacral Chakra.

Astral Body

  • your emotions reside here. It is comprised of different colors that are constantly changing based on how you feel.  Emotional experiences are also stored in the astral body and is linked to the Solar Plexus Chakra.

Mental Body

  • is made up of two parts, the lower and the higher. The lower mental body is linked to the solar plexus chakra, while the higher mental body is linked to the heart chakra.
    The lower mental body is where you do your everyday thinking. It is the mind that you use to reason, form mental arguments, create thought forms, and memorize things. The lower mental body is tied to your personality.   For example, thinking negatively will eventually permeate into the physical body.  Therefore changing your negative thought patterns can often change your mental health for the better.

As your spirituality develops you’ll raise your consciousness and it is through this pathway you’ll be able to tap into the One Mind.  The “One Mind” contains all information.  By opening your higher mental body you’ll receive moments of knowledge that flow to you.
