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 Historically important sources in Egypt have been superseded by today's main sources in Arizona and Pakistan.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.
Any time I want a really nice gem to put into a ring or a pendant, I go first to GemSelect. I have tried other vendors and the quality is not even close. Besides, I have to take what I can get from them. With GemSelect, I can do a search on size, shape, gemstone, color, cost, etc. or any combination. And their prices are very reasonable. Wow! All this and quick delivery, too!!
I have purchased from GemSelect before. I was impressed with the obvious care that was taken in the packaging and shipment of my gem. The gem itself was absolutely stunning...which is why I highly recommend GemSelect!
