Said to protect against fears and bad dreams
Peridot has been adored since ancient times; its history traces back more than 3,500 years when it was prized by the ancient Egyptians. Found in various shades of green, peridot is most desired in lime hues. Peridot has been credited with a host of magical powers and healing properties, such as protection against nightmares and possessing the power to ward off evil. It is the recommended gift for couples celebrating their 16th wedding anniversary. Peridot is relatively soft and should be spared rugged, regular wear if worn in a ring. As a general rule, peridot is not enhanced.
