August Birthstone - Peridot

Good day everyone! This months birthstone is Peridot. The vivid green of the peridot, with just a slight hint of gold, is the ideal gemstone color to go with that light summer wardrobe. No wonder – since the peridot is the gemstone of the summer month of August.

Recently peridot deposits were located in the Kashmir region; and the stones from those deposits, being of an incomparably beautiful colour and transparency, have succeeded in giving a good polish to the image of this beautiful gemstone, which had paled somewhat over the millennia.

With Peridot being the Gemstone of the month, take a moment to go to my Etsy page and check out my sales on Peridot jewelry for the month of August!
