The Peridot Green Sands of Hawaii

A rare known fact about Peridot gemstones is that they are the gem quality form of olivine.  Olivine is named for its olive green color, spread throughout the sands of the beaches in Hawaii.  Olivine is found in lavas, and quite possibly meteorites.

Peridot is treasured in Hawaii as the tears of goddess Pele.  Pele lives inside the largest active volcanoes and is described as “she who shapes the sacred land.”  She is the goddess of fire, lightening, wind, and volcanoes.  With every volcanic eruption in Hawaii, it is said that Pele is expressing her longing to be with her true love.  However, because of her fiery origin, Pele is considered a fickle and dangerous force, prone to killing her lovers.

Today Peridot is considered a stone of luck and abundance, easily attracting love and wealth into your life with its beautiful lime green energy.  Peridot is an August birthstone, also used to keep away evil spirits and enhance confidence.  Awake your Hawaiian goddess with Peridot.
