Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth.
Peridot is often related to the fact that it is a stone with strong earth and wood energy. This stone gives many positive properties to those who are passionate in knowledge seeking and study. Peridot is also associated with money and wealth and is the birthstone for August.
