The “Gaïa” watch was selected to represent this radiant month. The month of August is also a vacation month for many people. It is the month of the first love, of the discovery of self and others. It is no accident that the stone for the month of August is peridot. Peridot, also called chrysolite, opens our heart to happiness and new relationships. It increases our self confidence and assists us in our growth. It sharpens our brain and prepares it for new knowledge. It abolishes inaction, indifference and fatigue. Peridot empowers us to take our life back into our own hands.
