August Birthstone Spotlight: Peridot

3rd August 2023

by Semrah

If your birthday falls in the month of August, you’ve arrived at the right place because we’re shining a well-deserved spotlight on the gorgeous green Peridot stone. With its stunning olive green hues, the Peridot is one of the only gemstones to be discovered in a singular colour, allowing it to stand out amongst the rest effortlessly.

A little bit of peridot history

Perhaps one of the lesser-known birthstones amongst the likes of Ruby, Emerald and beyond, the Peridot surprisingly has a rich and fascinating history behind it. With the first Peridots known to be mined for over 3500 years by the ancient Egyptians on the island of Zabargad located in the Red Sea, legend has it that it was more easily mined at night, due to its beautiful green glow. This in turn saw the Peridot often being referred to as the ‘gem of the sun’.

Throughout the decades Peridot has been mistaken for the highly popular emerald gemstone, and evidence has surfaced that suggests Cleopatra’s vast collections of emeralds could have been confused with what were peridots, which would make perfect sense with the stone’s original connection to ancient Egypt.

Where is peridot found?

Unique in its form, the Peridot can predominantly be found within lava in volcanic ash or molten rock but has also been discovered in meteorites and deep in the earth's core. In today’s climate, peridot can be found all over the world, in areas of Vietnam, China, the USA, Tanzania and many more locations.

There’s also a dedicated beach to the peridot stone, named Mahana Beach in Hawaii. Filled with sand rich in the bright green mineral olivine (which can also be known as peridot). Locals often refer to peridot as the “Hawaiian Diamond” and even sell small teardrop shaped gems that are said to refer to Pele, the goddess of volcano’s hardened tears.

What’s the meaning of the peridot?

With various meanings behind the semi-precious stone, the peridot is predominantly said to bring good fortune and prosperity thanks to its colour resemblance to money – so if your birthday is in August, you’re in luck! Alongside this, physicians once believed the peridot contained various healing properties, whilst balancing the mind and aiding a restful sleep too. From physical, to mental and emotional benefits, the peridot connects to the heart chakra, and is said to bring love and light into the life of whoever wears it.
