Peridot Facts and Folklore
Facts about the Peridot
Peridot is a precious mineral type of Olivine, and originates from Zabargad Island, a small volcanic island in the Red Sea. It’s an ancient stone found to have been used in Egyptian jewellery well over 3000 years ago.
Its olive-green colour is very similar to the Lucques variety of olive that grows here in the Languedoc region of France where my workshop is based!
If you’re looking for a wedding anniversary gift for your wife, then the peridot is the traditional stone of choice for the 16th Wedding Anniversary.
For a birthday gift for your wife, peridot is the birthstone for the month of August.
Whist I can’t guarantee any definitive good fortune comes with this necklace (sorry!), I can tell you a little about the folklore. In ancient times, peridot was considered a gemstone of warm energy with a protective aspect to its powers. As such, it has been thought of as a stone to inspire happiness and delight.
Often referred to as the evening emerald as it holds its colour in twilight more tenderly than true emeralds. With its gentle glow, early lapidaries pronounced peridot a good talisman against terrors of the night.
