**Peridot Facts:

Peridot, a variety of Olivine, has been known for many centuries. It was mined from an island to the east of Egypt during the reign of Cleopatra VII and before. It was dubbed "evening emerald" by the ancient Romans because of the way the color glows even in dim light.

An interesting fact about the color of peridot is that it is not caused by trace impurities, but is a result of its composition. This means that Peridot is only ever found in green. Fine quality stones are transparent, with a vitreous surface, no to few inclusions, with clear clean color. The most desirable colors are in the olive green to apple green range. Brownish colors are considered lower grade.

Most Peridot available today is mined in Arizona, with some material coming from Myanmar and Pakistan.

Peridot has a Mohs rating of 6.5-7; durable for use in jewelry. Refractive index is 1.65 to 1.70 which means that it has good fire. For this reason it is also sometimes called "Evening Emerald" due to its retaining its vivid color under varied lighting conditions.

Large crystals of forsterite, the variety most often used to cut peridot gems, are rare; as a result Peridot olivine is considered to be precious.

Peridot needs just a bit of care. Like many gemstones it cannot stand intense heat or rapid temperature changes.

Peridot can also chip if banged hard, and should never be steam cleaned or cleaned with ultrasonics.

Peridot is the birthstone for August and the 15th anniversary gemstone.
