Peridot - the Evening Emerald
The ancient Romans were one of the first to fall in love with the Peridot's radiant shine, which always remains the same, even in artificial light. For that reason they nicknamed it the 'Emerald of the Evening.'
The rich, green colour of the peridot is created by very fine traces of iron. The intensity of the colour depends on the amount of iron actually present.
Peridot is not a particularly hard stone but it is easy to look after and fairly sturdy. We love it - and so do those whose birthday is in August as it is their birthstone.
