August Birthstone: Peridot

Peridot is the ideal gemstone for lovers of green, whose approachable, balanced nature is reflected in the gem’s verdant hue.  Youthful and energetic, peridot is universally flattering.

Roman’s called peridot the “evening emerald” because its brilliant color didn’t fade at night, but instead seemed to glow.  It was believed to help dreams become reality and to drive away evil spirits.

Peridot is the August birthstone and the gemstone for sixteenth anniversaries.
