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 Historically important sources in Egypt have been superseded by today's main sources in Arizona and Pakistan.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.
This is my third order from GemSelect. I was 100% satisfied with my first two orders. Their photographs and product descriptions are very accurate and helpful. Selection is great. Shopping is very easy.
I received the product in a very well packaged parcel with complete detail of what I ordered. I opened the envelope, then the bag and then the bubble wrap and then the item containing the stone. I was so delighted at the color, the cut , the clean clarity and the sparkle of my Ametrine, love at first sight. Cant wait to get it set into a ring with some Citrine and Amethyst. Thanks so much
I have ordered several times from this vender and have never been disappointed. All stones have been what I expected to receive or better. I will continue to do business with this merchant for some time to come.
