While Preidot is commonly found in volcanic rocks, some Peridot crystals are believed to be extraterrestrial, arriving on Earth via meteorites. In ancient times, Peridot was associated with the sun, believed to be a gift from Mother Nature herself. Egyptians referred to Peridot as the "Gem of the Sun," attributing healing properties and spiritual protection to the gem. Legend has it that Cleopatra adored Peridot, and its beauty was believed to captivate her heart.

Peridot is a gemstone belonging to the olivine mineral family, which accounts for its delightful green shades, ranging from pale yellow-green to vibrant lime green. The intensity of the green color is influenced by the amount of iron present in the crystal structure, with higher iron content resulting in a deeper green hue. The finest Peridot gemstones showcase a velvety, lush green, resembling the rich tones of the finest summer landscapes.

Whether gifted to a loved one or cherished as a personal adornment, Peridot jewelry remains an eternal reminder of the lushness of nature and the abundance of life.
