Curious about peridot stone... Born of fire 🔥 and brought to light ⭐️
• Blog •
I have always been attracted by peridot stone, but didn’t have a particular explanation. Love using it in my jewelries and they sell very well every time.
But I’ve chanced upon a very interesting read:
“Called “the extreme gem” by the Gemological Institute of America, Peridot is born of fire and brought to light, one of only two gems (Diamond is the other) formed not in the Earth’s crust, but in molten rock of the upper mantle and brought to the surface by the tremendous forces of earthquakes and volcanoes. While these Peridots are born of Earth, other crystals of Peridot have extraterrestrial origins, found in rare pallasite meteorites (only 61 known to date) formed some 4.5 billion years ago, remnants of our solar system’s birth. Peridot in its basic form, Olivine, was also found in comet dust brought back from the Stardust robotic space probe in 2006, has been discovered on the moon, and detected by instrument on Mars by NASA’s Global Surveyor. Ancients believed, quite accurately, that Peridot was ejected to Earth by a sun’s explosion and carries its healing power.”
Weeeeel, apart from the great deal of spiritual qualities that peridot has - the writings above are just fascinating!!
