The Peridot is
a very old gemstone, and one which has become very popular again today.
It is so ancient that it can be found in Egyptian jewelry from the early
2nd millennium B.C.. The Romans, too, were fond of this
gemstone and esteemed its radiant green shine, which does not change
even in artificial light. For that reason they nicknamed it the 'emerald
of the evening'. Peridot is also found in Europe in medieval churches,
where it adorns many a treasure.
created with volcanic action and sometimes found in meteorites,
Peridot is one of the few gemstones which comes in one color only
The rich, green color with the slight tinge of gold is caused by very
fine traces of iron
The intensity of the color depends on the amount of iron actually
thought to promote healing, friendliness and understanding;
if that weren't enough it is said to bring the wearer
success, peace and good luck.
