Peridot

Peridots are one of the very few gemstones that are created deep below the earth's crust in the fiery mantle and brought to the surface by volcanic activity. In fact the only other one I can think of is the diamond.

Peridot Colors

Peridots are always green but this can range from a light lime or grass green with a hint of yellow all the way through deep olive greens to an almost brownish army green.

In addition to its peculiarity of being formed in the earth's mantle and not crust, peridot is also idiochromatic and not allochromatic like most gemstones. This means peridot is green because of its chemical composition and not because of the presence of impurities like most gemstones.

Peridot Species

Peridots are actually a material called Olivine which is made up of two minerals – fayalite and forsterite. If the olivine has a good enough color, size and clarity to be a gemstone it becomes 'peridot'.

Peridot Price

Peridot is a very reasonably priced gemstone. Although clarity, cut and carat size will play a part, the deciding factor in the value of a peridot gemstone is the color.

The most prized peridots are those with a pure, even green color across the stone with no underlying hints of yellow or brown.

Countries such as Myanmar and Pakistan have built up a reputation for producing these bright green gemstones in just the right color so gemstones from these sources can reach better prices.

Carat Weight

The green color of peridots tends to look better with gemstones that are 3 to 5 carats in weight or even more. This size allows for a real depth of color to develop. As larger gemstones are that much rarer they can be a little more expensive per carat than smaller stones.

Peridots less than 2 carats in weight but with excellent color and clarity will range from $30 - $60 per carat while bigger gemstones may reach $80 per carat.

For more details please refer to our full Peridot Info page here

Treatments

Peridots are not known to be enhanced in any way by treatments other than the usual cutting and polishing into gemstones.

Where are Peridots found?

The main sources of peridot these days are China, Pakistan, Myanmar, Tanzania and the USA.

What jewelry is Peridot suitable for?

Peridot is rated at 6.5 - 7 on Mohs hardness scale which allows them to be used for most jewelry items although we would not recommend them for daily wear pieces or engagement rings unless in protective settings.

Birthstones and Anniversaries

Peridot is the one of the official birthstones for August.

Peridot is the traditional gift for the 16th wedding anniversary.

Through my Gemology course at OSU, I found this website and thought it's layout was appealing, as well as the amount of gems that are offered. Purchasing one was easy and simple, and I'll most likely do it again some time.

I love looking at gems. Your site is very easy to navigate and to find what I'm looking for. It is also very easy to explore lesser-known gems that are not always easily found. I spend way too much time exploring! LOL

Everything was good about this order except I was a little disappointed in the product because it was so small. This is the first time that I have ever bought a gem so I was very unfamiliar with the sizes mainly because measurements were in metric.
