About Peridot

The peridot, known to ancient Egyptians as the "gem of the sun," has a storied past. Believed to ward off evil spirits and night terrors, this gem was revered for its protective qualities. Its unique green glow is due to its composition of magnesium-rich olivine, a mineral formed deep within the Earth. Its chemical makeup, notably different from other gems, contributes to its distinctive coloration, unaffected by impurities. This fascinating history and singular composition make peridot an intriguing gemstone of both beauty and lore.
