Peridot is gem quality olivine which is a silicate mineral. It’s hardness is 6-6.5 on the Mohs scale.

The origin of its name is uncertain. It may be derived from a latin word “paederot”, a kind of opal, which it is not. Peridot is always olive green in color and can be found in meteorites and many places on earth including Brazil, Myanmar (Burma), USA, Africa, and Sri Lanka.

Peridot is thought to foster emotional balance, security and inner peace while helping to enhance confidence and assertion without aggression. In ancient Rome peridot was worn to relieve depression.
