August Birthstone: Peridot

  • 2015-08-01

Peridot, the birthstone of August, carries a lime green to olive green color and is one of only a few gemstones that exists in only one color.
Peridot is said to host magical powers and healing properties to protect against nightmares and to bring the wearer power and influence.  As peridot is a gemstone that forms deep inside the earth and brought to the surface by volcanoes, in Hawaii, peridot symbolises the tears of Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes.  Today, most of the peridot supply comes from Arizona; other sources are China, Myanmar, and Pakistan.
