The Peridot gemstone is a beautiful olive green color. It is one of the few gemstones that develop in only one color: green. The intensity or shade of green depends on the iron content on the stone; therefore the color can vary from yellow green to deep green. Peridot is believe to have healing and magical properties and bring power to whoever is wearing it.Most peridots in the US come from Arizona; however China, Myanmar and Pakistan also have peridot. Happy birthday to all people born in August!!
