The Peridot is a lustrous yellowish-green gem that is not as commonly worn as some other birthstones. For this reason, many people are curious about it when they begin a search for jewelry celebrating their August birthday. Because it is a lesser-known gem, it can be a stunning gift and natural conversational starter. A few fun facts you may not already know about August’s birthstone include:

Cleopatra Famously Wore Peridots

In ancient times, Egypt was the primary source of the peridot, called the ‘Gem of the Sun.' The Egyptians were extremely fascinated with the peridot, and they were made into Talisman to ward off evil. Interestingly, the gemstones worn by Queen Cleopatra was not emeralds as it was popularly believed, but actually the peridot. Travelers at the time were not yet familiar with the rare stone and mistook it for the darker green gemstone they already knew.

It’s Mined Across the World

Although it was made famous in Egypt, it can actually be mined in many places in America and abroad. American peridot mines exist in Arkansas, Arizona on the San Carlos reservations, Nevada, and Hawaii. Foreign sources of the stone include Australia, Kenya, China, Brazil, Myanmar, Pakistan, South Africa, Tanzania and Sri Lanka. Peridot crystals have even been found in pallasite meteorites!

Many Ancient Texts Mention It

References to the gemstone have been found in the Christian bible, going by its Hebrew name ‘Pitdah’. Egyptian scrolls found by modern archeologists indicate that the ancient Egyptian priests believed that the Peridot contained the forces of nature and used cups encrusted with this gemstone to achieve communion with their Nature Gods.

It is Woven into Ancient Hawaiian Folklore

The pale green color associated with the peridot gives off a tropical feel, and with good reason. This stone is formed deep within the earth’s crust and makes its appearance through volcanic activity. In Hawaii, the stone is involved in ancient folklore and is said to symbolize the tears of the Goddess Pele, the goddess of volcanoes and fire.
