Peridot is a beautiful and plentiful gem, and the only gemstone to occur in one colour, green. It ranges from bright lime and yellow green tones to brown and olive greens. It is thought Peridot may have originated in Ancient Egypt.
It is also the birthstone for August.
I love this very clever and very beautifully crafted Calico Juno Tree of Life Gold Necklace because it is so interesting.
This is a real talking piece in itself. And if your birthday happens to fall in August, your birthstone is peridot. So there’s even more to talk about.
