Your choice of stone we set: choose glowing Peridot Bullets, light green, often called the Evening Emerald, Peridot is commonly associated with spirituality and self-expression.

This golden gemstone is said to support vitality and health while encouraging and guiding hope, energy and warmth within the wearer. Some feel the NE Fireflies glow is more of a yellow light, this would be well represented by Citrine.
