PERIDOT GEMSTONE INFORMATION
The beautiful peridot in this antique necklace gold pendant is the birthstone for August and the gem for the 16th anniversary. It can also be given as an alternative choice for the 1st anniversary. As the gem of the sun, Peridot is a perfect birthstone choice for the summer month of August with its bright natural greens and golden flashes of brilliance. Peridot is the only famous member of the Olivine mineral family.
Peridot and Olivine are essentially the same mineral, with the word Peridot only being applied to gem quality specimens. Non-gem quality Olivine is actually relatively common in the Earth’s crust, but the magical golden glowing green with sufficient clarity and sparkle to be set into jewellery is much, much rarer.
Peridot is a sophisticated gem that has rightfully regained its position as one of the most popular gemstones around the world in recent years.
Today, the stone is cherished by people more for its beauty than its perceived powers (see history section, above), but the history of this stone still remains a significant part of its mystery and is a fascination for many who wear it.
Care of peridot is soap, warm water and a soft brush.
