august's birthstone- Peridot

Peridot, August’s birthstone, is rich with healing energies.
Called “the extreme gem” by the Gemological Institute of America, Peridot is born of fire and brought to light, one of only two gems (Diamond is the other) formed not in the Earth’s crust, but in molten rock of the upper mantle and brought to the surface by the tremendous forces of earthquakes and volcanoes.
A stone of transformation, Peridot is excellent for emotional balance of the body. This could be helpful for the relief of anxiety, heaviness of the heart and even to bring peaceful sleep.
