Formed in the depths of the Earth’s mantle, this precious gem comes to the surface during the eruption of volcanoes. For this reason, in Hawaii it is believed that Peridot is a symbol of the tears of Pele, the Goddess of Fire from whom the volcanoes were formed. Keeping in the theme of fire and light, Peridots are also branded with the nickname ‘The Evening Emerald’ due to their constant shine despite the time of day or lighting they are being observed under.
This powerful stone is often used as a talisman to ward off nightmares or increase ones strength and self-confidence. Peridot, whilst widely known as the August Birthstone, is also the gem used to represent 16 years of Marriage! Whether you are an August baby, celebrating that 16th wedding anniversary or simply in love with the brilliant lime green hue of this gorgeous gem; Perdiot is best worn set in a piece of jewellery that you can cherish for a lifetime.
