Peridot – August Birthstone
Peridot was valued in many ancient and medieval cultures, first in the second century BC in priests’ jewelry and later in the chalices and churches of medieval Europe. Peridot has also been used for centuries as a protective ‘lucky charm’, shielding the owner from evil spirits.
Today, the gem is highly desired because of its range of colors, from brownish or yellowish green to greenish yellow—making peridot one of the very few gemstones that occur in olive green naturally.
Taking care of your Peridot gemstone
Peridot is not a very hard gem (hardness of 6.5-7), and cannot take tough wear, so it is not recommended for use in rings if the rings are going to be worn daily. Cleaning peridot is a fragile process. Never use a steam cleaner or ultrasonic cleaner, as peridot is vulnerable to thermal shock. Instead, warm, soapy water is recommended for cleaning. It is further recommended to wash off dust to prevent scratching and dulling the surface.
