Peridot is a green or yellowish-green gemstone that is commonly found in places such as the United States, Brazil, and Russia. Although it is not a rare stone, it is commonly difficult to find crystals in good condition, and therefore, this is a gemstone that is used in some more expensive types of jewelry and rings. The original purpose of this stone was thought to be a stone that could protect you from evil spirits, and has been used as such in ancient times. However, in the modern times with crystal healing, there are so many more applications for this beautiful crystal.
1. Chakra Connections
Peridot is unique in that it is directly connected to both the solar plexus and heart chakras, and can be very beneficial for its users in chakra meditation and healing. Peridot cleanses the mind, body, and spirit and helps you to let go of old feelings or burdens such as guilt, shame, and other feelings you may be holding on to. This makes it perfect to meditate with when you feel like you may have a blockage in the solar plexus or heart chakras. It has also been effective when placed on the throat chakra and suggests that peridot possibly can help to cleanse this area as well.
2. Out With The Old, In With The New
If there was every a crystal that matched up with the phrase "out with the old, in with the new", peridot would be it. It has the power to draw out negative energies and things that may be holding you back. Peridot can help you realize your full potential and prepare you for new experiences and purposes in your life. Feelings such as anger, shame, guilt, and jealousy will be cleared out of you as you make way for more emotional growth. Peridot can cleanse the spirit and make you more confident, self-assured, and can give you the clarity you need to understand the truth of your spirit and your existence.
3. Mending Relationships
If you have a difficult stressor in your life such as a relationship with someone else that is potentially toxic, harmful, or difficult, peridot may be able to help. It will bring you a new sense of clarity when thinking about the struggles you may have with someone else. You will be able to open yourself up to a new sense of awareness that may help you and this other person move on from the situation or problem, forgive each other, and overcome old grudges that could be potentially holding you both back from moving forward in your relationship.
4. Psychological Impacts
Because of the cleansing nature of this stone, it has been said that peridot can help with mental disorders such as bipolar disorder. The ability to come to terms with your mistakes and shortcomings is an essential part of therapy, and peridot can help to enhance this. This could help you let go of old feelings that have been bottled up inside of you for quite some time, and for those with a mental health disorder, it may help to balance and cleanse the mind of old burdens.
5. Physical Benefits
In addition to the psychological benefits, peridot can also help the physical body by working to heal and regenerate. This is why it is ideal to use when focusing on parts of the body such as the heart, thymus, spleen, intestines, and ulcers. In addition, peridot can also help to enhance metabolism and heal the skin. It may also be able to help lessen the pain of contractions during the birthing process.

It is recommended that you always seek the help and advice of a medical doctor if you are dealing with medical issues. Crystal healing is beneficial, but should not be used as a replacement for any kind of treatment you are receiving from a doctor.
