Green in August: Peridot

Green in August Peridot is the August birthstone. It is the gemstone variety of olivine and is the only gemstone found in meteorites! It only comes in one color - green - but the shade of green will vary depending on how much iron is present. The color can vary from yellow-green to a dark green, similar to emeralds. Metaphysically speaking peridot is a stone of lightness and beauty. A very spiritual person can wear peridot in a necklace with the stone at the base of the throat and feel its soothing effect. When used in a necklace, peridot is a protector against negative emotions. Here are some beautiful peridot creations by our Jewelry On Etsy team members ...
