Peridot has been treasured since the ancient times being first mined by Ancient Egyptians on an island located in the Red Sea, Ancient Egyptians cherished this gemstone so much, they kept the island a secret for as long as they could, they knew they had something special when it came to Peridot even over 3000 years ago
Peridot is one of the few gemstones that is found in only one colour, It is an idiochromatic gem, which means instead of getting its colour from other impurities, it gets its natural colour from the chemical structure within the gem itself, the intensity of the green depends on the amount of iron in the chemical structure, the more iron, the deeper the green.
Peridot in its basic form is called Olivine, which often occurs on volcanic rocks, forming in extreme heat, just like diamonds, a lot of gemstones are formed in the Earth's crust, Peridot however, is found much deeper in the Mantel region, it has been found on Meteorites & found on Mars, Today, Peridot is found in in several areas around the world from the Himalayans, Pakistan, Australia, Arizona to Hawaii, My favourite place in the world the Green Sands Beach on the Big Island in Hawaii gets its famous green colouring from from Olivine - Peridot, and its been named the “Hawaiian Diamond”
