Peridot Rings: A Hawaiian Legend

In Hawaii there is another, totally unique, story about the origin of the peridot. On The Big Island Hawaii at the shore at South Point, is a beach made up of what seems to be green sand. Spewed by volcanoes and tumbled by the sea, these are tiny crystals of peridot. In about 1911, the noted American geologist/volcanologist Frank Perret of the Carnegie Institution, christened these beadlike bits of peridot 'Pele's Tears'. They're named after Pele, the Tahitian-born Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes and fire, known for her violent temper and jealousy. Today, from her home in the active volcano of Kilauea, Pele is believed to venture out from time to time and travel in this mortal vale.

Traditionally associated with wealth, peacefulness and safe and secure relationships, the peridot is also said to strengthen the spleen, liver and gallbladder. Detoxification, of various types, seems to rank high in the attributes of the peridot. In addition, at one time, ground peridot was dissolved in water and taken by mouth as a treatment for asthma.

Peridots have even been found in meteorites! From this fact and all the various stories, myths, and traditions connected with it, you could even say that the peridot is simply out of this world! You'd be at least partially right.
