    About Peridot

    About Peridot

    Peridot, also known as chrysolite, is a special gem that displays a lovely yellowish-green color. What makes it stand out is that it exclusively comes in this one cool shade. This gem is found in rocks oflava and peridotite xenoliths, which are like chunks of Earth's mantle. The intensity and tint of the green, however, depend on the percentage of iron in the crystal structure, resulting in individual peridot gems varying from olive to brownish-green. Also, unlike most gems that form in the Earth's crust, peridot is created in the hot, melted rock of the upper mantle.

    Hardness and Durability

    Crafted by the forces of time and geology, the peridot stone emerges with a remarkable resilience. Boasting a hardness of 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale, it stands as a testament to durability, ensuring your jewelry remains a timeless expression of elegance. Whether adorning yourself with a peridot ring, engagement ring, earrings, or necklace, each piece is a testament to the enduring beauty of this captivating gem.

    History of Peridot

    People have cherished peridot jewelry since the time of the pharaohs, around 2000 BC. The ancient Egyptians were all about it, calling it the 'gem of the sun' because they believed it kept away the nighttime fears. Interestingly, some experts think that what we once assumed were Cleopatra's emeralds might actually have been peridots. Fast forward to medieval times, and folks got confused between peridot and emerald. For example, take Germany's Cologne Cathedral, where 200-carat gemstones were thought to be emeralds but turned out to be peridots.
