ACCORDING TO LEGEND, CLEOPATRA’S EMERALDS WERE ACTUALLY PERIDOT CRYSTALS, WHICH SHARE A SIMILAR AESTHETIC TO THE HIGHLY PRIZED JEWEL. TODAY, FOUND POLISHED AND ROUGH, THIS GEM IS STILL PRIZED FOR ITS RESTFUL YELLOWISH GREEN HUES AND LONG HISTORY. PERIDOT CRYSTAL HEALING PROPERTIES ARE ALSO KNOWN TO INCREASE MENTAL FOCUS BY MAKING THE MIND MORE RECEPTIVE TO LEARNING NEW THINGS… LIKE HOW TO TAME KINGS!
Peridot is a lime green semi-precious stone. Peridot is found all over the world yet, quality peridot with no inclusions can be rare because the rock which they find in the ground is usually small.
