Did you know…
Peridot is the birthstone for August. Peridot was used quite often in ancient times by the Egyptians. They would call it “gem of the sun” because of the way it sparkles in the sun.
Peridot is actually a mineral named Olivine and comes in a variety of green colors from light yellowish green to a deep olive green.
Peridot is nicknamed the “evening emerald” because it was believed that it glowed in the dark. Peridot was mined at night. Miners would mark the spot where they were found and come back in the daylight to retrieve them.
Peridot has often been confused with Emerald.
