The Peridot - Birthstone of August

The Peridot is the official birthstone for the month of August. The word peridot is derived from the Greek word 'faridat', which means 'gem'. The Peridot is a pale green variety of chrysolite and is used as a gemstone.

The peridot is one of only the few gemstones that come in any colour. However, they do come in a wide range of natural green colours and shades, with the most popular being a sparkling green colour. 

As well as the birthstone for August, they are also known as the wedding anniversary gemstone for the 16th year of marriage.

The formal characteristics of the peridot are success, peace, love, truth, faithfulness and loyalty. Furthermore, the peridot is considered to be the stone of fame, dignity and protection. Previously, the peridot was often used to decorate churches and is also used to decorate the shrine of the Magi and the Cologne Cathedral.

The peridot can be incorporated into pendants or rings. Furthermore, it is the perfect gift for anyone celebrating their birthday / 16th wedding anniversary any other special occasion during the month of August.
