Peridot is the birthstone for the month of August. (It’s also the gemstone for the 16th wedding anniversary.) With a lovely olive green hue, the peridot is one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color–green. Depending on how much iron is contained within the crystal structure, however, the intensity and tint of green in individual peridot stones can vary from yellow-green to brownish-green to bright lime green to a dark olive green.
As with many gemstones, the peridot is believed to hold magical and healing properties that bring its wearers power, influence, and a wonderful year. With its unique, radiant hue and intrinsic powers, what’s not to love about peridot?
