The ultimate easy, breezy, summer stone!

The glorious olive-toned Peridot has been under-appreciated for years, overlooked as a lesser gem, often considered as simply the birthstone for August. Its popularity has fallen in and out of vogue for centuries. However, a new resurgence is bringing to light what Peridot lovers and August babies have always known: this is a truly remarkable stone.

Peridot has a history as a sought-after gem that goes back to the time of the ancient Egyptians, who according to legend, hunted the iridescent stone with lamps at night, and thought of Peridot as the gemstone of the sun. Peridot has been credited with a host of healing properties and magical powers, such as sweetening dreams and revealing insights. Historically, Peridot was believed to bring happiness, success, peace, good luck, attract love, and foster friendship.

Peridot is one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color: an olive-green. The intensity and tint of the green, however, depends on the percentage of iron that is contained in the crystal structure, so the color of individual peridot gems can vary from yellow, to olive, to brownish-green. In rare cases, peridot may occur in a medium-dark toned, visually pure green with no secondary yellow hue or brown mask.

peridotPeridot comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. The largest cut Peridot is a 310 carat specimen in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C.

The birthstone for August, Peridot is also recognized as the preferred gift for the 16th wedding anniversary.  The gem of bliss and good fortune, Peridot illuminates the sunny disposition of those who wear it. It is a crystal of warmth and well-being, mentally stimulating and physically regenerating.

The Peridot adds a wonderful variant to the color spectrum of green gemstones. Peridot is both an ancient and thoroughly modern stone. Its green is the perfect complement to a fresh, light summer wardrobe. Beautifully faceted, it evokes the lateness of summer and the onset of fall, as leaves morph from green to gold.
