Peridot belongs to the forsterite-fayalite mineral series which is part of the olivine group. It is one of the "idiochromatic" gems, meaning its color comes from the basic chemical composition of the mineral itself, not from minor impurities, and therefore will only be found in shades of green. In fact peridot is one of the few gemstones found in only one color. Historically important sources in Egypt have been superseded by today's main sources in Arizona and Pakistan. The Pakistani peridot in particular is very fine, and a new find in Pakistan in the mid-1990's has made peridot available to a wider market. The supply of peridot from China is also increasing and we have recently sourced top quality peridot from Vietnam.
I purchased a yellow sapphire for about $145 with shipping and the Gem Certificate. I used the $10 shipping option and it arrived 2 days early. (Please note that if you want a Gem Certificate, it can take up to 5 days longer to be delivered) The gemstone looked exactly like the picture and video. I am so excited about the quality and price! Please note that the Gem Certificate does not say the clarity for some reason... 150% happy with this website, and would use it again!
