Sometimes referred to as “evening emerald,” peridot is a beautiful olivine-based gemstone with a luminous green coloring that varies in saturation depending on the iron content of the mineral.
Often found in igneous environments, peridot gemstone is brought to the earth’s surface through volcanic activity and is abundant in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Myanmar, China, and in the San Carlos Reservation of Arizona, USA.
Peridot rings are thought to bring happiness and joy to the wearer, free the wearer of envious thoughts, and strengthen the health of the eyes. Pair this cheerful gemstone with Swiss blue topaz or amethyst for a youthful and modern aesthetic, or alternate with diamonds or black onyx to highlight the gemstone’s natural glow.
As a gemstone with a low hardness rating, peridot gemstones are easily scratched and can burst under heat or stress. Always clean your peridot gemstone ring gently with soap and water and never subject the stone to steam cleaning or ultrasonics.
