August Birthstone: Peridot

Peridot: August's birthstone, with it’s signature lime green colour, is believed to instill power and influence in the wearer. With citrus and earthy tones, this gemstone is very unique and distinctive.

What is Peridot?
Peridot is an olive-green, semi-precious gemstone and one of the very few gemstones only to occur in one colour. The intensity and tint of the green is dependent on how much iron is in the crystal structure, so the stone can range from a yellow-green to olive-green to a dark brownish-green. The most valuable colour of peridot is a dark olive toned green.
