Mineralogy: Peridot is the transparent gem-quality Olivine, which ranges in color from yellow-green to olive green. The Olivine group of minerals are a series consisting of chemically combined forsterite and fayalite forming magnesium iron silicate. Peridot has a orthorhombic structure generally found in granular masses and has a hardness of 6-1/2 to 7. Peridot is rarely found in sizes larger than 6mm grains.
Metaphysical: Peridot is a great Chakra stone for Heart and Solar Plexus. Peridot is the August birthstone and is said to alleviate jealousy, spite, bitterness, & greed. It may reduce stress, anger, and guilt.
Minerology: Rubies are a red gemstone, a part of the corundum (aluminium oxide) family, in which the color is caused by minor amounts of chromium replacing aluminum in the crystal structure. In traditional gemmological terms, ruby has to be blood-red and of clear, facetable quality to justify the name, however in wider usage any corundum with a red or reddish colour has attracted the name 'ruby', and this name is usually applied in this way by mineral collectors. On the Moh's hardness scale, rubies have a hardness of 9, and among the natural gems, rubies are only surpassed in hardness by diamonds. (Another gemstone-quality corundum is the sapphire.)
Metaphysical: Ruby is thought to correspond to the Heart and Base chakras and encourage leadership, courage, heightened awareness, and vigor.
