Green Peridot Flower of Life Marquis Silver Necklace
1 3/4" diameter
Peridot is one of only two gemstones not formed in the Earth's crust (diamond is the other). It's called an "extreme" gem because it is born of fire in the molten rock of Earth's upper mantle. Thanks to earthquakes and volcanoes it is brought to the surface. Peridot has also been found in comet dust!
Of course, the fact we included 108 gemstones in the pendant is significant as well. The number is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists, and 108 beads are found on a mala. The number represents the wholeness of existence according to the Vedas. Furthermore, Shiva Rea explains, "The average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters." Cosmic!
