BirthStone Jewelry By Ruth Beattie

Peridot is the birthstone for August. Peridot is one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color, an olive green. The intensity and tint of the green, however, depends on how much iron is contained in the crystal structure, so the color of individual peridot gems can vary from yellow--to olive--to brownish-green. The most valued color is a dark olive-green. Celebrate August with peridot or other green semiprecious stone seen here.
