The PERIDOT (pronounced pear-a-doe) ranges in color from yellowish-green to brown but consumers are typically attracted to its bright lime green to olive greens in color. The green color derives from the presence of iron-- less iron equals more green. Typically it is a smaller sized gemstone and is often used in beaded necklaces and bracelets. It has been said that peridots hold magical powers and healing properties to protect the wearer from nightmares and to elude power, influence and wonder. The peridot is also associated with love, truth, faithfulness, and loyalty. A The peridot forms deep inside the Earth and is brought to the surface by volcanoes. In Hawaii the peridot symbolizes the tears of Pele who is the goddess of fire and volcanoes. Peridot is supplied by Arizona, China, Myanmar and Pakistan- to name a few. It has also been known to be found in meteorites and is one of the oldest known gemstones. The Smithsonian holds the largest peridot stone at 310 carats!
