Ahhhhhh....16mm Peridot separated by Onyx. Love this necklace!

So here's what she is: a feminine yet very bold necklace with big as an apple Peridot separated by delicate Onyx and very fancy Thai Hill Tribe Silver. The Peridot has tons of marbling for effect and character. The length is a perfect 19"!

History, myth, legend and lore:

Since Peridot is the birthstone for August, here is a Gregorian Birthstone poem for you August babies:

Wear a Peridot or for thee,
No conjugal fidelity,
The August born without this stone,
Tis said, must live unloved alone.

So, consider this necklace a tribute to all of you August ladies, as it embodies your Leo traits!

You have to admit it's great to be able to have the courage and roar of a lion, and yet dress like a vamp?

Did you know that Napoleon once made a gift of Peridot to Josephine as a symbol of undying love and admiration? I thought that was a fun bit of trivia.

When Hawaiian natives first discovered Peridot in the black sands of volcanoes, they believed the clear, green gemstones were the tears of the volcano goddess, Pele. Egyptian jewelry featured Peridot, "the gem of the sun," as early as two centuries B.C., believing it connected them to their goddess, Isis. Peridots are said to have been a favorite gemstone of Egypt's most famous queen, Cleopatra.

The Romans admired the stone for its constant color which does not change in artificial light, calling it "emerald of the evening." Peridot is found in Medieval Christian churches and shrines and was also popular during Europe's baroque period of the 17th Century.

For those who were born in the month of August the Peridot is the traditional birthstone. The August birthstone poem reflects some of the properties with which the Peridot is associated - love, truth, faithfulness and loyalty. The Traditional Metaphysical Properties for the August Birthstone Peridot are fame, dignity, and protection. The healing properties of the August birthstone are reputed to be effective for health problems relating to the lungs, lymph, breast and sinuses. The Peridot is also used to enhance prosperity, growth, and openness.

A tiny island known as Zabargard (owned by Egypt) is documented as the first source of Peridot, dating back as far as four thousand years. Early Crusaders who visited St. John's Island (now called Zabargard) introduced this gem to Europe upon return from battle.

Peridot is mentioned in many ancient references as chrysolite. It is mentioned throughout the Bible, and early Christians considered it sacred. Today still, Catholic Bishops traditionally wear a ring of Peridot and amethyst as a symbol of purity and morality.

The Peridot was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature. In ancient times, it was said that a dream about Peridot foretold impending danger.

Peridot is a stone of lightness and beauty. Only spiritual or clear-minded persons should use Peridot. The person with too many earthly problems will not be able to understand the beauty of the Peridot. The very spiritual can wear Peridot in a necklace with the stone at the base of the throat to feel its soothing effect. Used in a necklace, Peridot is a protector against negative emotions.

So there you have it!
