Peridot Paradise

by Hibiscus Moon on February 5, 2014 · 39 comments

On my recent Hawaiian Travels I caught hard-core PERIDOT FEVER!!

Before going, I already knew that it was on my hot list since I was going to 1 of peridot’s most enchanting birth places but I had no idea that my respect & love for this crystal would deepen as much as it did. This trip introduced me to the magic & spirit of aloha & peridot is now so much a part of that for me. ♥

Find out why in this week’s featured video. In it I discuss:

  • Peridot’s scientific & metaphysical qualities
  • Chakra alignments
  • It’s volcanic roots
  • Unicorns, Curses & Magic Green Sandyep, you read that right
  • My signature spitting at the end (I’m not proud of that. What’re you gonna do?)

Peridot Paradise

Here’s that other video I refer to in the video. icon wink Peridot Paradise

A Challenge to You: What 1972 TV Show did I make reference to in the video? Please post your answer (or guess!) in the comments below! Also, please tell me about your experiences with peridot.

I could not stay away from this spot…visiting almost daily, finding endless peridot embedded in the cooled lava rock.

Amongst the peaceful green sea turtles sunning themselves on a deserted beach as I searched & made piles of peridot in the sand. We all just went about our business of being…in paradise

Hey, love the video on peridot! I do not have this crystal so have no experience with it as yet. That had to be the Brady Bunch clip, lol!

Namaste.

WOWW!! I LOVE Peridot! That looks like my idea of Paradise! I spent a day last summer frolicking in an open-pit Amethyst mine, and had the BEST time, but this looks beyond lovely!!! :) <3

NOw I know why everybody who goes ends up moving there!

Wow! I had no idea! I really love how much you educate people in your videos, Hibiscus Moon. :) That close up is breathtaking!

BTW, I never notice any “spitting”. I think it’s one of those things that we are self conscious of and make a big deal of – meanwhile no one even notices. ;)

Hibiscus Moon February 5, 2014 at 11:27 pm

TY so much Carol. ((HUGS)) I think I’ll make point of ending every video with a spitting blooper. ;) Only kidding.

What a wonderful trip! I am basking in the thought that “we are all one” and visualizing that I was right there with you! I KNOW that you brought some containers to bring some of that magnificent sand home, am I right?! By the way, Hibiscy-Love, I just received the crystal elixer link via email, but it gave me an “error” message, and I’m a wee bit excited to hear your version of how to whip up an elixer. Blessings and love to you!

Brittany…you were. And….no way. I am not in the mood to mess with Pele. No how. ;)

Thanks for the information about peridot. I make gemstone jewelry. I found that although small drilled peridot stones are very fragile to work with and can break easily, they make beautiful sparkly finished pieces. Looking forward to seeing what spectacular finds you bring back from AZ.

Wow wow wow. How lucky were you to be on that beach? Thank you for sharing that and all the photos. I loved that the turtles were there too!!

LOVED this video!! I got the book “A Grain of Sand” by Dr. Gary Greenberg for Christmas this year. My bucket list now includes all of the gorgeous beaches he photographed. I have got to get to Maine to visit the beach of garnets!! And then that peridot beach in HI! OOOOO!!! The photo of you on the beach “communing” reminds me of myself when I get to the ocean or a beautiful body of water. I LOVED the Hoh River in WA state. The color was mesmerizing as were all the wonderful rocks and stones about it. :) I could just sit there for days and days. :) Thank you for sharing this with us!

Great video! I am super duper geology nut myself! Just stumbled across you a few months ago and hope to take your course! I actually went to the green sand beach! (The big island is my favorite!) It was quite a trek to get that small remote beach but oh was it worth it!!! If anyone is up for the adventure, I highly recommend it!!! To be sitting in all that olivine! AMAZING!
Thank you for all your videos!

Erin February 6, 2014 at 1:47 am

Oh and I too only left footprints!! Took only pictures and memories! Not messing with Pele!

I’m going to pay more attention to the peridot and purchase a few of the peridot crystals. This is my birth stone. I am a August baby. I do have a ring and necklace but do not wear them. I am trying to get more in tune to my physic and maybe the peridot can help me do this. I’m also taking a course in metaphysics at church which I am enjoying so much. I didn’t catch the mention of the t.v.. Someone said The Brady Bunch but I don’t recall you saying anything about a t.v. show.

Hey Hibiscus!
I love your videos, you have inspired me to change majors and pursue geology in college! In my geology class the other day my professor mentioned peridot (olivine), she said that some scientist think that this is the key to understanding our mantle and lava systems. Under a large amount of pressure the structure of the crystal liquifies, because of this amazing reaction there are some theories that our lava and mantle may not be liquid and super heated for the reasons we previously believed, the heat and liquid state may be caused by the pressure of the earths crust. That beach looks perfect, our earth is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

Hibiscus Moon February 10, 2014 at 11:03 am

Oh my goodness!!!! that makes me so very happy. You have no idea. I love turning out new science geeks! That’s my passion…one of them. ;) Yes, your geo professor is into the new science. Keep your ear & eyes open to that…you’ve got a good teacher there. Also ask about some of the olivine that arrives from meteorites. ;)

How could anyone NOT be excited about finding Peridot on a beach? I’ve got the tiniest piece, from my friend’s crystal shop. Seeing it on the beach must be fantastic.

Hey Sparkle Mama,
What a beautiful vacation spot and awesome video. I too must hail the goddess of science-sparkle, this is what makes your stuff more captivating.
Because peridot is so effective and active for the heart and solar plexus chakras, I will often recommend this as a wearable to clients prepared for the healing experience.
Blessings

TY for appreciating the science. :) I know not everyone is into it but that’s what I do!

Wonderful video, as always! I saw the photo of the garnet dodecahedron from the Tuscon show (my birthstone, big as a baseball!), and you mentioned that it had been polished to remove the roughness. This led me to wonder, and to want to ask you if you think only rough stones should be used as centerpieces in crystal grids. I ordered your book, and I’m still awaiting its delivery, but I don’t know if that topic is addressed.

Namaste!

Hibiscus Moon February 10, 2014 at 11:00 am

Well, I still consider that one a raw or rough stone. Some light polishing doens’t bother me. Even completely cut & polished stones that don’t resemble the original in any way can be sued for energy work. I just don’t feel they are as powerful. :)

I knew! I just knew that there was something “deep” (magical) about going south on Mauii. Istayed in Hana for a couple of days. All I could do was marvel on repeat about being on a black sand beach. There was something about it, unexplainable that had me alluded. I wanted to go more south. So now I feel that is what was calling out to me. Lindberg lived his last days down in the very south of Mauii. He was onto something other than the “Spirit of St. Louis.” Something way better!

Hibiscus Moon February 10, 2014 at 11:01 am

The green sand beach is actually on the south tip of the big island, Hawai’i. But Maui is my fav. ;)

So now, I really want to go back and see and feel the power of periodite wit saltwater!! Props to you for respecting the land and leaving the gifts of Pele intact!

Peridot holds special meaning for me and the green sand beach in Hawaii has been one I would like to visit. Unfortunately, the trek kept me away on my last visit. This smaller beach might be perfect for taking my parents to on our next trip. Do you remember the name?

The Brady Bunch movie.

Thanks for all the wonderful clips. I’m just getting back into crystals and woo-woo (term we use for mystical/metaphysical) stuff. I just bought some peridot small roughs at a gem show and some small tumbled peridots on eBay. They are lovely. I was drawn to the bright green.
