Natural peridot also known as Olivine or zabarjad is the substitute gem of natural emerald /panna and carries the planetary energy of Mercury/ Budh within it. Metaphysical and healing properties of peridot include helping the wearer, get rid of negative emotions and by regenerating positive life force by helping the endocrine system. Peridot also goes by the euphemism –“emerald of the evening”.
Peridot is among one of the earliest known gemstones. It is interesting to note that there is a reliquary of the Three Kings- the Biblical Magi – Gasper, Melchior and Balthazar in the Cologne Cathedral (which is a world heritage site itself) in Germany. The shrine is believed to rest the relics of the Three Magi. It is one of the finest specimens of Medieval gold smithy made around 1181 AD and has, among nearly a thousand gemstones, three 200-carat peridots decorating it!
