Peridot is a high-vibrational Heart Chakra crystal said to carry positive energy that is helpful for those undergoing traumatic emotional situations. The strong Heart Chakra energies are what give Peridot its ability to bring out unconditional love and help those who are working to lessen the effects of the ego in their lives. Peridot can also work with Solar-Plexus Chakra to affect your understanding of the relationships in your life, whether romantic, friendly, or otherwise. This makes Peridot a good crystal to wear or carry during interactions with others.
Peridot is also a protective crystal, offering a supportive energy to keep chakras in balance and alignment, especially after any type of energy healing work has been done on the body. These "maintenance" type energies make Peridot exceptional in group situations, offering its upbeat and comforting vibe to all nearby. It is a wonderful crystal to use in increasing Reiki energy. Most Peridot contains magnesium-rich Forsterite and its color is caused by the presence of iron ions.
