The eighth and final rune of the first aett of the Elder Futhark. It is the rune of bliss and one of the Victory Runes, rounding off our first aett on a high note. It is harmony and contentment, it is the feeling of having enough, of feeling joyful and satisfied. It can also help with emotional healing to align with that sought state of joy, including being present in the moment and being grateful for what you find there. If you let it, it can direct you to new potentials and prevent stagnation. I have also found it useful in unlearning codependence habits.
It’s called “the extreme gem” the Gemological Institute of America. Peridot is born of fire and brought to light, one of only two gems (diamond is the other) formed not in the Earth’s crust, but in molten rock of the upper mantle and brought to the surface by the tremendous forces of earthquakes and volcanoes! Peridot is a great healer: it aids in resolving matters of the heart, helps boost confidence, releases negativity and unhelpful patterns, and empowers growth. Linked with solar energies, it’s a stone of abundance, forgiveness, wealth, and happiness.
