Sterling silver peridot earrings
Peridot is a fascinating, yet underrated crystal healing stone to work with. It has a very rich, deep, and interesting web of connections with the history of the Heavens and the Earth.
Peridot is the French word for, “olivine.” It is also known as, and less commonly referred to as Chrysolite. When the stone is referred to as peridot, it actually describes a high grade, gem-quality stone of Olivine that is clear, translucent and with a bright greenish color. The clear, glassy and bright green qualities are distinguishing of a peridot. Otherwise, Olivine is named for the more common ‘grade’ of the stone, and exhibits a visible cloudiness or milkiness.
