An Ode To Peridot Gem
Oh Peridot, you are a glorious gemstone, one of a kind.
Born of fire from the molten rocks of mother Earth's womb,
conceived by the romantic explosion caused by Sun.
You are the love child of Sun and Earth that made you bloom.
Your unique complexion varies in shades from green to yellow
symbolizing Earth's fertility and Sun's verve in abundance.
You are the crystal of warmth, well-being and you carry
the power of mental and physical healing, the inner radiance.
You are not only the national gem of Egypt but also been valued
by ancient royalties for driving away all the dreary dark forces.
As amulets with your enigmatic charm you have quelled sorcery,
black magic, evil spirits, calamities, nightmares and madness.
You are the ultimate talisman one can quest, for enrichment
in all aspects of life. You're the mascot for lost souls in worriment.
