About the stones
Green Amethyst is actually a type of Amethyst that contains certain iron compounds which when heated changes colour from purple to green. This can happen naturally and is known as Prasiolite, but it is very rare. The practice of heat-treating stone is common in the gemmological industry and it does not compromise the value of the resulting coloured stone. It is still a natural gemstone.
Green Amethyst is a highly spiritual stone. It is known to open the mind and bring prosperity by enhancing decision-making abilities, emotions and will power. Because it derives from Amethyst it also shares some of its properties such as preventing drunkenness and addiction and is used to alleviate sleeplessness, migraines and mental problems.
Green Amethyst is an extremely powerful and protective stone.
Peridot is the birthstone for August.
Peridot is a gemstone that forms deep inside the Earth. It is one of only two gems (diamond being the other) formed not in the Earth’s crust, but in molten rock of the upper mantle and brought to the surface by earthquakes and volcanos. In Hawaii Peridot symbolises the tears of Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanos.
Peridot has been found in some meteorites, making it one of the few gems known to exist outside our Solar System.
Peridot has been favoured since the earliest civilizations for its protective powers. First mined by the Egyptians in 1500BC they called peridot the ‘sun gem’ believing it had fallen from the sky. Pirates considered it a powerful amulet against all evil and when set in gold, it was said to protect the wearer from the terrors of the night.
Peridot is believed to be a powerful cleanser. Peridot teaches that holding on to people, or the past, is counterproductive and it helps release ‘old baggage’. It is believed to alleviate jealousy, resentment, spite and anger. Motivating growth, it helps to bring about change. Peridot sharpens the mind and opens it to new levels of awareness. It can also help to improve difficult relationships.
