I have some faceted peridot beads left that I wanted to use with the onyx square beads I have. I think it is a good idea to combine a heart stone (peridot) and a protection stone (onyx) together.
The black metal plated findings and fish hooks compliment the stones nicely.
Are the heavy? Yes, but they need to be. Onyx beads tend to be heavier and more dense than other gemstones. Hematite has that same weight and density too!
I call these my heart protection earrings. It has been said that peridot is great for cleansing the gall bladder and liver. The peridot wearer protects the heart from jealousy and negative emotions. Thus, promotes a loving and supporting spirit. Green is the color of money too, so it is believed that this stone is a money and prosperity stone. Onyx protects the wearer from negative emotions from others and blocks psychic attacks. In addition onyx helps one release unhealthy relationships and peridot helps one stay grounded during this process.
