“The green-apple crispness of Peridot is a perfect complement to today’s lively fashion scene. As the popularity of lime green continues to grow, so does the youthful appeal of this citrus-hued gem. Peridot is treasured by the Hawaiian peoples who believed the gem to be the tears of the Goddess Pele. Peridot was known in the ancient world as well; the Romans named the gem “Evening Emerald” as its brilliant color did not fade in lamplight, but instead seemed to glow in the evening hours. Partly for this reason, Peridot was believed to help dreams become reality and to drive away the evil spirits of night.
Peridot is found in Australia, Brazil, Myanmar, Kenya, Mexico, Sri Lanka, the United States and China. Our Peridot is either from China or mined by Native Americans on Arizona’s San Carlos Reservation.The energetic green gemstone, Peridot, is symbolic of August birthdays as well as given to those born under the zodiac sign of Libra. It is often used to celebrate wedding anniversaries – the 1st and 16th. It is also an ideal gemstone for lovers of green — whose approachable, balanced nature is reflected in the verdant hue of this gem.”
