This month, we are drooling over the magical August Birthstone, Peridot! This stunning green stone is perfect to wear all year round, as it looks gorgeous in the Summer sunshine and is perfect for brightening up your Autumn/Winter outfits.

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.
