Peridotite consists of Olivine, Pyroxene with Chromite, Garnet, and Plagioclase.

A little Mineralogical Info on Peridotite.

Peridotite is a generic name used for coarse-grained, dark-colored, ultramafic igneous rocks. Peridotites usually contain olivine as their primary mineral, frequently with other mafic minerals such as pyroxenes and amphiboles. Their silica content is low compared to other igneous rocks, and they contain very little quartz and feldspar.

Olivine (Mg,Fe2+)2SiO

Non-essential minerals - these minerals are common, sometimes major components, but are not always present:

Pyroxene A petrological term for Pyroxene Group.
Accessory minerals - these are minor components, often far less than 1% of the total mineral material:


Lherzolite: a peridotite composed primarily of olivine with significant amounts of orthopyroxene and clinopyroxene. Some researchers believe that much of Earth's mantle is composed of lherzolite.

Harzburgite: a peridotite composed primarily of olivine and orthopyroxene with small amounts of spinel and garnet.

Dunite: a peridotite that is composed mainly of olivine and may contain significant amounts of chromite, pyroxene, and spinel.

Wehrlite: a peridotite that is composed mainly of orthopyroxene and clinopyroxene, with olivine and hornblende.

Kimberlite: a peridotite that is composed of at least 35% olivine with significant amounts of other minerals that might include phlogopite, pyroxenes, carbonates, serpentine, diopside, monticellite, and garnet. Kimberlite sometimes contains diamonds.

Ok, so here we go......................

As soon as I hold this stone, I get a vision of a dense, dark forest. It is kind of scary! As if by magic, fairies and elves, pixies and trolls, and all sort of forest folk appear, full of fun, full of life and full of light.

This stone is representative of nature, of the fertile ground and the green plant life that grows in it. I believe this stone would be beneficial to those who grow sustainably, specifically those who work with herbs and herb medicine.

It grounds us to Mother Earth, sharing in the love, protection and care of her. It helps to keep our feet planted firmly when all about us may be in chaos.

This Peridotite is also a stone of responsibility. Encouraging activism. Taking a proactive stance on any of a number of causes. Taking action, no matter how big or small.

For those who feel fear, and a darkening of the heart, this Peridotite, will break the wall around the heart, letting in light, allowing the heart space to bloom and grow.

This is a stone that will allow you to face, without fear or trepidation, the shadow self. It reminds us that the Shadow Self is NOT a bad thing......it is simply part of the duality that we currently reside in. It can be quite helpful to our moving forward to understand its place in our growth.

This is a stone that will aid in the removal of old hooks and cords. We have all heard the saying, "when so and so gets their hooks into you..."

Hooks and cords are very similar, but often in an energetic way. Unseen. Often completely oblivious that they are even there!

Everyone has experience this at some time in their lives. A hook or cord may connect you with someone you have felt sympathy or apathy for, someone you may have tried to help.

My feeling is that these cords can be childhood cords, created by programming/conditioning of parents and family. It can be a friend who often uses the ruse of being a victim to keep you feeling sorry for them or someone who demands your validation on a regular basis. You feel pulled in but at some point, but when it becomes an endless circle, you may feel the need to pull away and even more drama ensues. When you feel an energy drain or feel as if your power is being taken away chances are there are energy hooks and cords binding you.

This Peridotite is not a dark stone, although many of the characteristics may appear to be. You see, you must be able to see things for what they are before you can remove, change or transform them.

Peridotite can help to soothe anger, in both word and action. It will lesson jealousy and resentment towards others. Remember, this is just shadow self stuff that needs to be understood and addressed.

Peridotite is about forgiveness. Once you crack the dark stone around your heart, you are able to see the light and love of the heart space. That is when revisiting whatever issue caused the closing of your heart, can be seen with new eyes, with divine love and purpose and eventually, forgiveness.

This is a stone of learning. A stone of embracing self. A stone of loving self in all aspects.

Physically, Peridotite can aid in helping to heal infections and strengthen the immune system. It will help to remove toxins from the physical and emotional bodies.

Working on self is one of the most difficult and challenging experiences we can have here in the physical body. We often put it off, choosing to help others instead. But, Peridotite points out that we must stop giving ourselves "busy" work and get down to business. It is time.
