Did you know?
Peridot forms during volcanic eruptions, and only occurs in
one colour: a lush green. The intensity of this green depends on how much iron
is contained in the crystal structure and so the colour of individual Peridot
gems can vary from a more yellow-toned green to a deep olive. Peridot was
known as the evening emerald by ancient Romans, who noticed that its
green colour shone even more vividly in lamplight. In folklore, Peridot is said
to protect the wearer from nightmares and evil spirits.
