Peridot - Birthstone for August
The green color of Peridot ranges from a yellowish green to a deep olive green. Anciently, Peridot was called the Gem of the Sun in Egypt, Pele's tears in Hawaii and Evening Emerald by the Romans. Peridot is a 6.5 on Moh's scale and is found in rocks created by volcanoes and in meteors.
We love using peridot paired with other stones and gemstones.
