Purification and recharging: 

Not all stones can be cleaned in the same way. Some do not like the sun, others the water or the moon, etc. It is therefore important to respect the needs of each stone. 

For effective purification of peridot, we advise you to purify it as soon as you receive it. Indeed, even if we purify all the stones ourselves, they have been manipulated by other people before you. It is therefore important to purify them so that they deliver all their virtues to you. 

  • Water, Sun, Rock Crystal, Flower of Life, Fumigation


Purification : 

Regarding the purification of peridot, we recommend that you purify it by placing it under running, salt or distilled water for a few seconds while delivering an intention to it. We recommend that you take inspiration from its virtues. For example, you could give it the following intention: "help me passion and happiness in my life". The purer the water, the more effective the purification will be. Be sure to dry your jewelry well so as not to damage it.

White sage and Palo Santo are also good ways to purify peridot and rid it of bad energies. Light your sacred grass then you can then pass it under this smoke with strong purifying powers. This gentle, yet effective technique can also be used to recharge your stones. 

Important : Never drink, store or use water that has been used to purify your stones. In addition, jewelry made of a material other than stones (wire, stainless steel, gold, silver, etc.) cannot be in contact with water for too long.



Exposure to sunlight is an excellent method to purify and recharge your peridot. Place it in such a way that it receives its rays and then soak up its energy. 

Reloading is also possible on a cluster of crystalline quartz or a geode. For this method, leave your stone/jewel in your geode for at least a day.

The 3rd possible method to recharge a ruby is with sacred geometry. We advise you to use the high vibratory rates of flower of life, scallops... 


Reload frequency: 

After a while, your stone will have transmitted all of its energy and will need effective recharging.

We invite you to purify it and recharge it regularly.  

Peridot is a stone that discharges very slowly, so you can recharge it rarely or when you feel the need.

If you use it daily or during an intense period (exam type), we recommend that you purify it 1 to 2 times a week to clean it of negative energies and recharge it 1 to 2 times a month to bring it positive energies.

If you use it more rarely, you can purify it once a week and recharge it once a month. 


Tips :  

Peridot is a stone that does not absorb negative energies, so it does not need frequent cleaning or recharging. Peridot is a dominant stone that acts quickly.
