Peridot: August’s Birthstone

IMG_7595 (Edited Version)

Peridot, August’s birthstone.

The ancient Egyptians mined peridot on the Red Sea island of Zabargad, the source for many large fine peridots in the world’s museums. The Egyptians called it the “gem of the sun.” Today this gem is still prized for its restful yellowish green hues and long history.
