August Birthstone (Peridot)

 

Peridot is considered to be the birthstone for August and is the stone traditionally given in celebration of the 16th anniversary of marriage.

Known by the Egyptians as the “gem of the sun,” Peridot is a stone of compassion, friendly energy, and prosperity. In fact, some historians have come to believe that the emeralds Cleopatra adorned herself with were actually deep green Peridots.

The first source of this regal gem was documented on a small Egyptian-owned Island, with ancient papyrus scrolls recording the mining of it as early as 1500 B.C. Further on throughout history, Peridot was used to adorn everything from a queen’s crown to a knight’s sword, making it one of the most prominent gems throughout history.

Designer Michael Barin of Sixth Avenue Fine Jewelers prefers to work with Pakistani Peridot on account of its “darker, deeper color” when compared to stones coming from Burma, which are “more teal and opaque.” He purchased his first Peridot for his daughter, since it is the birthstone for August, and the rest, as we say, is history.
