 Jasper, Peridot Gemstone Properties 

Design Possibilities

Peridot jasper is like rich cream with a hint of cool mint blended into it. These creamy, gleaming beads combine peridot's delicate beauty with jasper's low cost. Because of its variety and abundance, jasper has been popular since antiquity for amulets, ornamental objects, mosaics and jewelry. This beautiful form of jasper is a wonderful way to add a soft look to your jewelry creations. When you combine peridot jasper with other green stones (including peridot itself), it will subtly and quietly "echo" the other green, enhancing and complementing its color. Wherever and whenever cream with just a hint of green is what you're longing for, you'll find it deliciously served up in peridot jasper.

Metaphysical/Healing Properties

My friend Belinda has an inner beauty that makes her glow. I think it's because she accepts herself, and everyone else, unconditionally. If you sat down beside her on a plane, you'd find yourself telling her all your deep, dark secrets. Nothing you could say would upset her or go any further. Before the phrase "we're all doing the best we can" became a catch phrase, Belinda already knew that's what we were all doing. Simply put, she celebrates and honors life wherever she finds it. That's what peridot jasper can help us do, also.
