Birthstones for August, and gemstones to be given as a celebration of 16 years of marriage, peridot has been called the "extreme gem" by GIA, due to the fact that it is the one of only two gems (diamond being the other) tobe formed not the Earth's crust, but in molten rock and brought to the surface by the tremendous forces of earthquakes and volcanoes. Peridots can also be found in rare pallasite meteorites formed some 4.5 billion years ago, remnants of our solar system’s birth.
Found in various shades of olive, peridot is a crystal of warmth and well-being, mentally stimulating and physically regenerating. It carries the gift of inner radiance, sharpening the mind and opening it to new levels of awareness and growth, helping one to recognize and realize one’s destiny and spiritual purpose.
