Peridot, which brings friendship, will help one born in August to steer clear of envy and helps ward off depression and fear. It can also be used to help gain divine inspiration, strengthen the effect of medicine and improve one’s speech.
The cool blue sapphire marks the season’s shift from summer to autumn. To those born in the transition month of September, it relaxes and clears the mind. It also protects its owner from fraud, envy and ill health.
The complex and colorful opal ensures fidelity and confidence for people born in October, in addition to sharpening the mind and emotions. Legend says that it is especially good for the eyes.
