Peridot is a gem quality olivine, a type of silicate, and is one of only a handful of gems that occur in only one color. It sits at 6.5 - 7 on the Mohs Scale. It is carried to the surface of our world by both lava flows and meteorites.
Prehnite is a gemstone and an inosilicate of calcium and aluminum, and it crystallizes in the orthorhombic crystal system. Typically, the crests of the crystals that show any face are almost always curved or composite. It is named after Colonel Hendrik Von Prehn, a Dutch military commander.
This stunning pendant is composed of three bright faceted Peridot gemstones and a rough Prehnite stone, set in sterling silver. Whether you are headed to a black-tie dinner or just relaxing in the sun with a good book, this understated piece of jewelry will be an energizing accent.
Peridot is the birthstone of August and holds strong associations with the sun. Peridot works as a "resetting" stone, bringing stagnating energies and natural cycles back into a proper alignment. Placed over the Solar-Plexus Chakra, Peridot can help with anxieties and "stage fright". It also works to alleviate negative emotions within the Heart Chakra, such as jealousy and self-doubt.
Prehnite is a very versatile stone metaphysically. Said to be a stone of unconditional love and healing, it is believed to be a great Feng Shui stone for decluttering and hoarding possessions due to an inner lack of love. Also thought to provide a safe sanctuary mentally when placed in your home, and an excellent stone for the garden.
