The Peridot

August Birthstone, peridot
Happy Birthday Peridot Treasury

It's party time for all the August babies.  Happy Birthday to all of you!  

If you were born this month, most likely, you wear a lot of olive green, which is the hue for your birthstone, the elegant peridot.

Did you know, that Peridot has some awesome qualities? For example, it is believed that it can provide success, peace, and good luck to the wearer. I did not know that; I'm mostly attracted by color not the properties of a stone.  Now that we know the properties, perhaps we will wear it most often.  We sure can use more success, peace and good luck in our lives, right?

I dug out some info on the stone and found out that according to the U.S. Geological Survey, here in the States we get our peridot supply mostly from Peridot Mesa in the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation and Buell Park Apache County in Arizona. Also, check this fact: it is believed that The San Carlos location generates 80% to 95% of the world's production of peridot. That's so crazy!

In any case, get your peridot and wear it proudly. And if you get instant success, peace and good luck, let me know.
