Spring green–lime green–where green meets gold, peridot is a fascinating shade in it’s most intense form.
“Our eyes are so sensitive to green because it’s all around us.” something Phil often says when showing a fine peridot.
No other gemstone has the same precise green, it surprises me that Cleopatra would have called her peridot emeralds, although that is the ancient rumor.
You can see some vivid peridot featured in our Ancient Dreams Collection.
Peridot is August’s birthstone, and the stone used to commemorate the 16th Wedding Anniversary.
