The color green, such as Peridot, has an interesting effect on us because it can be energetic and motivating, as well as calming and tranquil at the same time. Green hues have long been associated with nature, providing us with feelings of being refreshed, renewed and relaxed.
The green color found in Peridot is invigorating and rejuvenating, promoting healing and well being.
As we transition into Fall, the environment begins to change creating a gorgeous array of colors within nature. This time of year is a visual reminder of the beauty that nature creates and how influential and inspiring it can be for us. Our natural inclination is to celebrate this beautiful expression of color which is no wonder that September was once known as the month of festivals.
Green tones are believed to be associated with the Heart Chakra, or energy around the chest connected to the heart, lungs, and circulatory system. When we are angry, emotionally upset or anxious, this is the part of our body that is most directly affected. Wear the color green to bring in more of an abundance of love and tranquility.
Throughout history the color green has been a symbol of fertility and in the 15th-century was the ideal color choice for wedding gowns. Ancient Egyptians thought of Peridot as “the gem of the sun”
