Only occurring in shades of green, peridot is an unusual stone- one of only two gems formed deep in the earth’s mantle instead of the upper crust layer. The birthstone for the month of August, peridot is also the national gemstone of Egypt, where it is nicknamed the “gem of the sun”. These irregularly shaped stones are smoothed, and approximately 5mm in size. They are a vivid spring green.
Semi-precious stone beads are mined all over the world and then are usually cut in China. They will often be dyed or color-treated to enhance their appearance. We select the best quality semi-precious that is available, and try to avoid finishes that are not durable. It is best to assume that some semi-precious beads will fade over time.
