Shop Peridot Gemstones from Jedora
Peridot. It's not emerald… it's not green beryl. But it is a green gemstone worthy of your collection!
The One and Only Peridot…
Peridot has won the world over. The Egyptians called it “the Gem of the Sun.” The Romans called it the “Evening Emerald.” Some think that comparing peridot to emerald will help them gain popularity. But peridot doesn't need any help! They are strong, independent green gemstones with a lot to offer.
Peridot is a gemstone made under high heat and pressure. Like diamond, peridot forms far deeper underground than most gemstones. Its coloration comes from iron. With trace amounts of this magnetizing substance inside, no wonder these gemstones will draw you in!
Looking for a peridot that isn't green? Well, hate to break it to you, but any peridot that isn't green is NOT an actual peridot. It's true that their coloration can range from yellow-green all the way to a more greenish-brown color. But anything outside of that… not the real deal. Keep an eye out for those “peridot wanna-bes” out there.
Peridot is one of the birthstones for August, along with spinel and sardonyx. Spinel, like peridot, has been mistaken throughout history for the greater known ruby. And sardonyx comes in lovely shades of brown alternating with white layers. It symbolizes strength, courage, and happiness. Just like peridot does!
Hung up on peridot? Don't worry. Jedora has peridot gemstones in a range of shades, styles, and cuts. Pick your favorite and bring on the confidence and happiness you need to conquer your day!
