The traditional August Birthstone is Peridot. Furthermore it is one of the few gemstones that occurs in only one colour. The intensity of the colour is due to the amount of iron in the crystal formation.
Mythology of Peridot
Peridot was used in ancient Egypt for jewellery and also in healing since 2000BC. It has often been confused with emeralds. It is furthermore believed that Cleopatra’s famous emeralds were probably peridot.
In the Middle Ages it was also used to ward off evil spirits and also to give wisdom and friendship.
