AUGUST – Peridot or Sardonyx
Peridot is said to host magical powers and is said to protect the wearer from nightmares with its healing powers and also brings power and influence to them. In Hawaii peridot symbolizes the tears of Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanos. It is available in many tones of limelike green.
Sardonyx is used as a stone of strength and protection since ancient times, sardonyx is associated with courage, happiness and clear communication. It combines alternating layers of sard and onyx—two types of the layered mineral chalcedony—to create a reddish zebra-striped stone with white bands. Not as popular as the Peridot.
