Jewelry Info



This bright and vibrant stone has caught the attention of humans for centuries. Some historians believe that at least some of the "emeralds" that Cleopatra wore were actually peridots. Peridot is a relatively hard mineral, 6.5-7 on the Mohs scale.

For many years the U.S. was the largest producer of peridot, which is mined in Arizona and New Mexico . China and Pakistan are now challenging the States for that title.

At one time large quantities of peridot know for their superb color and clarity were being imported from Myanmar, (formally Burma). Under the current government, peridot production has been curtailed to the point that it is no longer a factor in the industry.

Peridot is formed on Earth by volcanic activity. This stone is also found in meteors. According to folklore, wearing peridot brings luck and success.
