Peridot, also known as olivine, was thought to ward off bad spirits in the past. It is still an aura-protective stone. This stone is a potent purifier. It cleanses the subtle and physical bodies, the psyche, and neutralises poisons on all levels. It frees up old baggage while opening, purifying, and activating the solar plexus and heart chakras. Obsessions, guilt, and burdens are released. Holding onto people or the past is unproductive, according to experts. You can learn to separate yourself from other influences and turn to your own higher energies for direction by using peridot.
