Birthstone of the Month - Peridot
In addition to being a beautiful green stone, Peridot, the birthstone of August, is said to host magical powers bringing the wearer power, influence, abundance, prosperity and a wonderful year. It is also said to contain healing properties to protect against nightmares, stress in relationships, lessening anger and jealousy and slowing aging.
Peridots are a magnesium rich type of Olivine, a silicate mineral found in lava and meteorites. Although rough Peridot is plentiful, gem quality Peridot is rare. One of only a handful of gemstones that occurs in a single color, Peridot’s signature yellowish olive to brownish green color is dependent on the amount of iron contained in its crystal structure, bright olive green being the most popular color today. Peridots have a hardness of 6.5 to 7 on the 10 point Mohs scale of mineral hardness, making them a great stone for every day wear. Today, the majority of Peridot is mined in Arizona, Hawaii, where the Peridot symbolizes the tears of Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes, China, Myanmar (Burma) and Pakistan.
