Peridot Green Peridot is our gem of the month in August. Light and deep shades of natural green remind us of summer meadows. Fine, natural inclusions in the gems makes peridot jewelry truly unique. Origin As early as 1500 B.C. Peridot was found on Zebirget, an island in the Red Sea. Today, it is sourced in countries as varied as Brazil, Australia, USA, China, Pakistan, Myanmar, Kenya and Norway. History The name is derived from the Greek “peridona”, meaning “giving plenty” and from the Arab “faridat”, meaning “gem.” Its second trade name is Olivine. Ancient cultures such as Egypt used Peridot to treat many diseases including asthma, bronchitis and ulcers. The Romans believed that Peridot protected against demons. Peridot is the birthstone for August. Fine Jewelry Bright 18K white gold makes intense shades of the Peridot glow. We love to combine them with different shades of Topaz for a fresh, summer look as in our Color Story 'Caribbean'. . Peridot gives warm fall colors a fresh appeal. A perfect combination is with Rutilated and Smoky Quartz and 18K rose gold. Care Recommendations
