About the August Birthstone Peridot
According to the American Gemology Society
, if you experience nightmares, want a wonderful year, or need a power boost, peridot is for you. Rising from volcanic fire spewing from deep within the earth, Peridot comes in variations for yellow green to brown. However, lime green and olive greens are the most commonly presented to consumers.
Called the gem of the sun by the ancient Egyptians, the stone is associated with light. According to the Gemological Institute of America
, Cleopatra’s collection of emerald jewelry likely featured a color variation of peridot.
Crystal Cure advises
that Peridot is believed to be a gift of Mother Nature – a springtime gemstone – that rises from deep within the earth’s crust.
