PERIDOT: August's Birthstone
Peridot is a gem of extremes: it's naturally found in lava, meteorites, and deep in the earth's mantle. Just like your love, it's the intense pressure that gives it its beauty.
It's the gem variety of the mineral olivine, and is one of the few semi-precious and precious stones that's only found in one color: shades of light green.
The Egyptians called it the "mineral of the sun," and it's still prized for its yellow-green hue. Peridot is among our favorite gemstones, and with its vibrant, playful color, it's easy to see why.
