August Birthstone: Mother Nature's Peridot

August Birthstone: Mother Nature's Peridot -Crystal Allure Beaded Jewelry Creations
The Peridot, Augusts' Birthstone, forms deep inside the Earth and is brought to the surface by volcanoes, in Hawaii. It is believed to symbolize the tears of Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes.

Peridot, when set in gold metal (the metal of the Sun), is said to bring the wearer power, influence and a wonderful year. This gemstone is also said to protect the wearer against nightmares. But, what I found most interesting about the Peridot gemstone is that it is believed to heal the lungs. It was thought, if the gem was crushed into a fine powder and administered to a person suffering from asthma, it would cure them of their ailment.

It just so happens that May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month.

The Peridot Birthstone was once only mined at night because the soft, lime green color glowed under a starlit sky, like a lantern. For that reason, it has been dubbed the title of "The Evening Emerald". When set in sterling silver or platinum jewelry this luminous green color birthstone gem, from Mother Nature, truly shines.

The gorgeous green peridot gem makes the perfect 16th Anniversary gift because it is associated with love, loyalty, commitment and harmony. Sparkling Peridot gemstones have been worn for centuries and adorned in handmade jewelry necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Here, at Crystal Allure, Peridot birthstone beaded jewelry can be customized with natural Peridot gemstones or the more budget friendly alternative, Swarovski Crystals (my personal favorite!).
