    About Peridot Jewelry

    Peridot is loved for its vibrant and refreshing green hue, ranging from pale lime to a rich olive tone. The gemstone belongs to the olivine mineral family and is commonly found in volcanic rocks. The striking green hue is derived from the presence of iron, and the intensity of the coloration depends on the amount of the metal present in its crystal structure. 

    Most peridot is formed in the Earth’s mantle. Olivine crystals develop under extreme heat and pressure conditions. When such geological events as volcanic eruptions or tectonic plate movements occur, these crystals are brought to the Earth’s surface. Gem-quality peridot is predominantly sourced from regions with volcanic activity, such as the San Carlos Apache Reservation in Arizona, the volcanic islands of Hawaii, certain areas in Pakistan, Myanmar, and China. Each location contributes to the unique characteristics of peridot, including color variations and inclusions that add to the gem’s individual charm.
    While set in precious metal, peridot’s green hue stands out, creating eye-catching and stylish pieces. Whether used as the focal point or as accent stones in a design, peridot adds a touch of nature-inspired beauty to any piece of jewelry.
