Peridot is the yellow-green form of the mineral olivine. It is found deep inside the earth and then delivered to us via volcanoes. It has been found inside meteorites that have travelled here from space although this extra terrestrial peridot is not the kind you will likely find in jewellery . Egyptians named it ‘the gem of the sun’. The name Peridot comes from the Arabic ‘faridat’ which means ‘gem’. Peridot is the birthstone of August and the 15th wedding anniversary gemstone.
