History of peridot 

Peridot has been known since ancient times and was often used as an ornament by the Egyptian pharaohs. The Egyptians called it the "sun stone" and believed that it brings wealth and prosperity to its owner. In ancient Rome, peridot was also a popular gemstone worn as an amulet to ward off negative influences.

Today, peridot is used in jewelry and attracts attention with its rich green color. It is a fairly hard stone, durable enough to be used in jewelry. Peridot is often used to create jewelry such as rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces.

Peridot Symbolism

The cultural significance of peridot is closely related to summer and vitality. It symbolizes growth, renewal and prosperity. It is believed that wearing the peridot strengthens body and spirit, helps avoid stress and depression, and gives energy and self-confidence.

The spiritual meaning of peridot is also related to the opening of the heart and sensitivity to other people.  It helps to attract positive emotions and repel negative ones, allowing its wearer to feel more harmonious and balanced.

Peridot is a beautiful gemstone that attracts attention with its rich green color and has many cultural and spiritual meanings. Using it in jewelry allows you to create beautiful jewelry, attract positive emotions and relationships with others, or simply appreciate its beauty and spiritual significance.

What to pay attention to when buying peridot?

 However, when choosing peridot for jewelry, it is important to pay attention to the quality of the stone and its processing.  Some peridots may contain inclusions or be of poor color quality.  Therefore, if you are planning to purchase peridot jewelry, consult an experienced jeweler or check his certificate for the quality and authenticity of the stone.

Peridot is also known as olivine and is a mineral composed of magnesium and iron silicate.  The green color of peridot is due to the presence of iron, which is an important element for its formation.  Peridot is found in many parts of the world, including the US, China, Pakistan, and Australia.  The largest chrysolite ever found weighed about 319 carats and was discovered on Zabargad Island in the Red Sea.

In addition, peridot is not only a beautiful gemstone, but also has practical applications.  For example, peridot is used as a sensor in measuring the pressure of the Earth's mantle.  It is also used as a component of some specialized lenses, including those used in military and scientific applications.

Finally, peridot is a popular gemstone for 16th wedding anniversary celebrations.  This is the perfect gift for couples who have been together for 16 years and want to celebrate their love and devotion.
