New lot of Peridots-Superior Emerald alternative uploaded. Enjoy limited quantities of pre 1962 resplendent Burma Peridot
Peridot is the name given to the gem quality specimens of the mineral fosterite. This beautiful gemstone has color ranging from olivine green to yellowish green and gives far more better results as an Emerald alternative for Mercury as compared to Tsavorite or Green tourmaline provided the gem is fully natural and totally free from treatment. The cause of color is the presence of iron in the chemical formula.
Conventionally used as the birthstone for August in the west, fully natural Peridot is becoming rarer by the day due to the abundance of treatments.
