Lush, energizing, sunny. These are just some of the attributes that come to mind when you see a sparkly peridot stone.
Being one of the very few gemstones that occur in only one color, a beautiful olive-green shade, peridot varies in intensity from yellow to brown-green. Nature lovers and romantics will love this stone, which evokes the lateness of summer and beginning of fall when foliage morphs from green to gold reflecting the sunlight.
Associated with the warm sun, peridot has been known for its protective powers used to drive away the forces of darkness. It is the birthstone for the month of August, and it has been referred to by Egyptians as the “gem of the sun”. Helping with fear and depression, this calming stone is also believed to release jealousy (why didn’t we know about it in our 20’s?) as well as helping maintain a positive attitude at all times.
Peridot jewelry is truly eye-catching. Set in sterling silver, this bright stone will shine even more, catching the light with its many facets.
Wear a beautiful pair of peridot earrings to enhance your eye color, or a standout peridot ring to spread light whenever your hand moves. A luxurious choice for gemstone lovers.
