Birthstone of the month - Peridot
Hailing from the olivine group of minerals, the peridot is a mysterious and thought-provoking gem. Peridot was valued in many ancient and medieval cultures, first in the second century BC in priests’ jewelry and later in the chalices and churches of medieval Europe. Peridot has also been used for centuries as a protective talisman, shielding the owner from evil spirits and “terrors of the night.”
Today, the gem is highly desired because of its range of colors, from brownish or yellowish green to greenish yellow—making peridot one of the very few gemstones that occur in olive green naturally. The differing shades of green are indicative of different levels of iron present in the stone. The color is especially exuberant because of its transparency, causing light to catch even in the dimmest surroundings and earning it the name “the evening emerald” and, as the Egyptians called it, the “gem of the sun”. However, peridot’s mythical nature goes further than warding off evil spirits.
While most peridot is found in lava rock deposits, the rarest form of this gem can be found in meteorites, making it the only matter from outer space that can be used as a gemstone. This form of peridot comes from meteorites called pallasites, which are iron-rich. One of the enthralling qualities of these particular gems is the notion that the origins of the extraterrestrial stone are completely unknown.
