Fascinating Facts About the Peridot Birthstone
Similar to any other gemstone, even the peridot gemstone is surrounded by many beliefs. It is said that the gemstone radiates positive energy; likewise, mentioned below are three of the most surprising peridot August birthstone facts.

The Only Gemstone That Comes in a Single Colour

Usually, gemstones have multiple colors depending on their place of origin. The Peridot birthstone here is an exception. One of the fascinating August birthstone facts is that peridot is found in only one color - green. The peridot gemstone can be found only in shades of green and not any other variant.  Now the color green can vary from pale yellowish-green to deep-olive green. Further, the peridot gemstone gets its color due to the presence of iron in the peridot’s structure. 


Peridot Birthstone Is Formed In Earth’s Mantle

There are several August birthstone facts, the most evident being its presence in the Earth’s mantle. The peridot birthstone is said to be like a diamond because these are the only two gemstones found in the Earth’s mantle. Since all the other gemstones are usually found in the Earth's crust and the peridot is formed in the mantle, it makes the peridot gemstone unique and special. Further, the earth's mantle is rich in iron; thus, it is found in peridot’s structure, giving the stone its green color.


The Peridot Gemstone Is A Fairly Inexpensive Birthstone

Gemstones are expensive - there is no denying this fact. When it comes to the peridot gemstone, this statement is partially incorrect. If you are buying the peridot gemstone under four carats, it is relatively inexpensive. Since the peridot birthstone is a form of olivine (a very commonly occurring mineral), it is less expensive than others. However, the pure peridot gemstone is rare, and thus, when weighing ten carats or more, peridot is considered to be of high quality and is much more expensive.
