August Birthstone: Peridot
Introducing peridot: the birthstone for August. Peridot's delicate shade of light green makes it unique as it is one of the few gemstones that occur in only one colour. This special gemstone is associated with qualities such as protection, good fortune, and healing, making it a lovely choice for gifting.
Peridot is formed deep within the Earth's mantle and brought to the surface by volcanic activity or tectonic movements.
