Hint Of Late Summer

By: Jeffrey M. Bertman Graduate GemologistIt seems that peridot (the gemstone variety of olivine) is the perfect birthstone for August because its vivid green color with just a hint of gold reminds everyone of a late-summer’s day. This gemstone’s fine pistachio to olive-green color, which perfectly complements a crisp, light summer wardrobe, has been exceedingly popular for a number of years. Actually, peridot dates back to antiquity, when it was found in Egyptian jewelry from the early 2nd millennium B.C. Today, this lovely gemstone is, once again, highly prized for its beautiful hue and lovely transparency. Despite its seeming delicacy, peridot has very good wearing qualities and requires no special care. It is a great everyday gemstone that is available in large sizes. The vivid green of the peridot, with just a slight hint of gold, is the ideal gemstone color to go with that summer wardrobe.See our outstanding selection of beautiful offerings at 1402 Hancock Street, Quincy Center.
