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 ...

The focal is a gorgeous, faceted peridot loosely wirewrapped in sterling silver wire and hanging on a sterling silver chain. peridot necklace sterling silver OneGarnetGirl created this gorgeous peridot ring in sterling silver peridot ring sterling silver CapitalCityCrafts created this gorgeous peridot and pearl necklace in sterling silver peridot and pearl necklace in sterling silver cserpent created these white agate earrings with just a hint of peridot in sterling silver white agate and peridot earrings sterling silver beiMondi created this six strand bracelet with peridot chips and navy blue seed beads peridot and seed bead bracelet in sterling silver silversmack created this hammered fine silver necklace with a peridot briolette peridot briolette necklace in sterling silver Be sure to check out all the other gorgeous peridot creations handmade by the Jewelry on Etsy team.
