What kind of a stone is a Peridot?
A Peridot is a green gemstone formed deep in the earth’s mantle. Some of its story is as fascinating as its association with the ancient Egyptian civilization. Some historians believe that the famous gems that decorated Cleopatra may actually have been Peridot gems. Believed to offer special powers to its wearer, it predominantly signifies strength.



This gem is most often formed through volcanic activity. It’s an August birthstone and symbolizes strength at its best. When set in gold this gemstone was said to protect the wearer from nightmares. It is also sometimes referred to as the stone that gives plenty. Interestingly enough, Peridot was originally probably referred to as topaz, for it is found son the island of Topazos (Zabargad) in the Red Sea and has been mined there for over 3,500 years.
