Hello KG Crew! We are well into August now & I’m sure you have some special birthdays coming up with Virgo Season around the corner! Our birthstone bottles make the perfect birthday present for your friends and family. But before you head to buy one, I wanted you to know exactly what the gemstone, Peridot, is all about!

Peridot is one of the most uplifting, loving stones associated with the heart chakra. Peridot embodies the cheerful, life-giving energy of the sun acting as your spiritual cheerleader. If you are after light and love, this is the perfect stone for you! Peridot works to promote abundance, prosperity, and happiness in life. Wear Peridot jewelry to open your heart chakra and attract love into your life. Allow yourself, when using the stone, to feel the love of the universe protecting your heart and allowing you to fall in love deeper with all around you, including yourself.

Dating back to ancient Egyptian times, the Peridot stone was Cleopatra’s favorite. She loved the stone for its beauty and used it to ward off evil spirits. Peridot is also known to have been found on the shores of Hawaii on the island of Oahu. Created in the pits of lava millions of years ago, Hawaiians believed this stone, made up of iron, silicate, and magnesium represented the tears of Pele, the goddess of the elements. 

You will always stay in the direction of the light with Peridot.  With its overall happy, light-hearted energy, Peridot protects you from negative energy while bolstering a sense of self-worth and motivation. Who can’t use a little bit more of that? Time to start shopping for those birthday gifts! Here's where you can find the Peridot Birthstone Bottle.
