and its the august birthstone, its a very hard to find gem in stores, light green stone. I wear my class ring everday and I get compliments and questions on it all the time.

It’s not always light green, it can be fairly dark as well. Like the color of a green olive (but transparent), hence the term olivine. The green in the sand in Hawaii is olivine, volcanic peridot, also known as Pele’s tears.

It is a bright vibrant green. Almost lime green.
I got a great peridot pendant from www.jewelclub.com. It is a sample sale webiste. great stuff. you need an access code us jclub460454. But you can see a lot of peridot jewelry on this site to help you see the color for real.

It is green in color. It is the birthstone for the month of august. Because of its color, in the olden days, it was thought of as emerald. But it does have variations in color and is different from emerald as they are deep green in color.
