August Birthstone - The Beautiful Peridot

Peridot is the birthstone for August and what a beautiful stone it is.

It is one of the very few stones that occurs naturally in only one hue; green.

The intensity of the tint depends on the amount of iron contained in its structure.

Colour can vary from yellow and lime green through to olive and brownish green.

Peridot is a cheerful and uplifting stone that has protective and powerful qualities.

It is said to promote abundance, prosperity and happiness bringing wealth and wellbeing into your life.

The stone dates back to ancient Egypt and was coveted by Cleopatra who wore it for its striking beauty and to ward off evil spirits.

Formed from the intense inferno of volcanoes, some peridot is ancient: it's found in pallasite meteorites, remnants of our solar system's birth.

As the birthstone for August, peridot jewellery makes a wonderful birthday present, anniversary present or push present for babies born during the month.
