Peridot was believed to be the stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature. Peridot is named after the French word peritot, meaning gold because the mineral can vary towards this color.
Peridot has been known to be the symbol of the sun worn for luck and success. It is a semi-precious stone.
Peridot has been under appreciated and overlooked as a lesser gem, small, easily obtained and relatively inexpensive often considered a simple Birth Stone. It is indeed the Birth Stone for August but is so much more than a stone symbolizing a month. However, a new resurgence is bringing to light what Peridot lovers have always known that this is a truly remarkable stone.
