Peri Leaf (or Peri Tear) pendant brings protection against negative emotions. It also is a symbol of tear of repented,representing lovely and graceful person.
In Persian and Islamic mythology, the Peri are spirits who have been denied access to paradise until they have done penance.
They are exquisite, beautiful, winged, fairy-like graceful creatures ranking between angels and evil spirits. They are believed to sometimes visit the realm of mortals.
Having been expelled from paradise, and trying to regain entrance by giving the gift that is most dear to heaven. After three attempts,eventually the Peri is admitted back into heaven, by giving an angel the gift most dear to God, "A warm Tear from a repentant sinner's cheek" the tear of an evil old man who repented upon seeing a child praying in the ruins of the Temple of the Sun at Balbec.
Over the years, the symbol has adapted a few forms, because the shape of the tear resembles a leaf, some refer to the name as tear,and others a leaf. This exquisite pendant made of sterling silver carries a powerful stone of lightness and beauty called Peridot. This stoneis used as a protector against negative emotions, and is meant to provide soothing effects. It is also mentioned throughout the Bible and early Christianity, and considered sacred.
Peridot is mentioned in many ancient references as chrysolite. The peridot was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients whoconsidered it a gift from Mother Nature. It is also called “heal the healers gemstone”.

this pendent is much prettier in person, expensive in Canadian dollars/shipping I bought it to help with negativity that surrounds me and so far (had it for less than 2weeks) I lost an expensive bracelet, was in a minor car accident 9not my fault) and now have an extremely sore back. Not sure if this is the pendent for me. I am assuming this is negativity leaving me and hopefully the future will be brighter.
