Mesmerizing Gift of August: The Peridot

Peridot is the only birthstone of August, and the 1st and 16th wedding anniversary gemstone. We love this stone and here is why.

What Makes Peridot Special

Peridot is one of only two gemstones (the other is diamond) that are formed in extreme conditions of magma from the upper mantle (20 to 55 miles deep). Volcanic activity drives the peridot to Earth’s surface.

This is why Peridot represents exclusive endurability, craving for life and gives endurance to it’s wearers.

What Peridot Does For You

The vibrant green peridot is one of nature's most mesmerizing gifts, which is associated with harmony, good health, and peacefulness. It is a balancing and calming stone that gives renewal to all things.

Its juicy apple green and light lime hues add a playful yet refined touch to jewelry and give a burst of gorgeous greens to the wearer's look.

As a green stone, it is linked to the heart chakra (Anahata). It nurtures one's heart, helps overcome depressive thoughts and breakdowns.

Peridot can bring happiness, prosperity and protection on the energy level. It symbolizes inner lightness, safety and equilibrium.

It is a special talisman for Leo’s

Peridot Size

Peridots are naturally fairly small, but they can possess a clarity and sparkle which gives them great beauty. At Boutique Baltique we love to use the most sparkly peridots that can be found.

Peridot Color

Peridot is one of only a few gemstones that occur in just one color, green, but its hue can slightly vary from olive to brownish green.
