Peridot is the birthstone for those born in August, and the zodiac sign Leo. Peridot is a gem quality variant of the mineral olivine. It is one of only two gems (Diamond is the other) formed not in the Earth’s crust, but in molten rock of the upper mantle and brought to the surface by the tremendous forces of earthquakes and volcanoes. Peridot is one of the few gemstones that occurs in only one color – green. It is a stone of transformation, useful in overcoming addictions, aiding sleep, and resolving matters of the heart.
About the Tree of Life
The tree of life is a mystical and magical tree that is well known in many cultures. It represents our connection to all things -- earth, air, water, fire. In Celtic culture, trees were the centre of all that occurred -- the absence of trees would be the absence of life. In Christian tradition, eating from the tree of life is said to grant immortality. In Norse mythology, the tree of life, or Yggdrasil, binds together all realms of existence. This ancient tree represents our connection to our ancestors and also of our individuality. The stages of a tree's growth through the year mirrors that of the cycle of life, similar to the eternal life/re-birth traditions in many religions.
