Peridot Jewelry - The stone of Success and Happiness
Lucky talisman of those born in the sign of Libra and know as the August birtstone, the peridot is one of the few precious stones that is found in nature in one color: green. However, the peridot can take on a wide variety of shades of green, ranging from yellowish-green to greenish-brown. The intensity and shade of green, however, depends on the percentage of iron in the crystal structure of the peridot, so the color of the individual peridot stones can vary from yellow to olive, to green-brown. In rare cases, the peridot may have a pure green color of medium or dark intensity, with a secondary shade of yellow or brown. The lighter peridot stones are known as Chrysolite. Another name for peridot is olivine. In its history, this stone that can acquire different shades of green has been considered, at one time, even more expensive than diamonds.

Properties of peridot
Associated with the sun, Peridot was appreciated by the earliest civilizations for its protective powers to ward off the forces of darkness.

The formation of the peridot in the mantle of the earth
Peridot is a common mineral in mafic and ultramafic rocks, often found in lava and in the peridotite xenoliths of the mantle, which lava brings to the surface; however, the quality peridot, which we adore in jewelry, is found in very small quantities. Peridot can also be found in meteorites.
The different types of peridot can be differentiated by size and composition. Peridot formed as a result of volcanic activity tends to contain higher concentrations of lithium, nickel, and zinc than peridot found in meteorites.
Olivine is an abundant mineral, but the quality peridot is quite rare due to its chemical instability on the Earth's surface. Olivine is usually found as small grains and tends to exist in a strongly deformed state, unsuitable for decorative use. The large crystals from which olivine is cut and ground are rare, they are rare; consequently, olivine is considered to be precious.
The geographical location of peridot mines
In the ancient world, peridot mining, then called topazes, on St. John's Island in the Red Sea began around 300 BC.
The main source of olivine and peridot today is the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona. It is also mined elsewhere in Arizona and in Arkansas, Hawaii, Nevada, and New Mexico at Kilbourne Hole in the United States; and in Australia, Brazil, China, Egypt, Kenya, Mexico, Myanmar (Burma), Norway, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Tanzania.
The gorgeous yellow-green peridot has been underestimated for years, overlooked as a more unimportant jewel, easy to obtain, and relatively cheap, often appreciated exclusively because it is the notorious stone of those born in August and nothing more. Its popularity has waned over the centuries and has gone out of style. However, a new, modern perspective on gemstones brings to light what Peridot lovers have always known: the peridot is a truly remarkable stone with exceptional properties. Do not hesitate to wear jewelry with peridot or to give as a gift to your loved ones' unique ornaments, with the greenstone of success and happiness!
