fun story!!!
now a super
In acient times, people used to think peridot
was a diamond! That is really funny because
"diamonds" today are a completely different stone!They thought that because one day when ancient Egyptains were mining for peridot in the sun, it was hard to see the green in the peridot. When the sun shined on the stone, it became clear! One day the island became infested with snakes, and the pharoah sent them to another island that was cooler and not as hot. So, it became clear that this stone was not a diamond and peridot's classic lime green stood out!After this point, peridot will always be known as the beautiful lime/olive green stone.

7)Ancient times
To take care of peridot, you should
NEVER use a steam cleaner!!!!!!The reason is peridot is a precious stone and it would damage the stone....
powers

Strengthens breathing, growth, and openess
Heals physical hearts of ill people
Helps decrease anger, fear, jealousy, and anxiety
And
Iron magnesium silcate
With fine traces of iron
The iron makes the stone green!

Let's start!;)
Introduction
Peridots are a very versatile stone. I was born on August 3, 2001, and my birthstone is the peridot. An alternate birthstone for August is Sardonyx. However, my birthstone is peridot.This is because I'm born on the first half of the month because I'm born on the 3rd, but for kids born on the day of the 17th and up their birthstone is Peridot and Serdonix.
Birthday: August 3, 2001
Value:
The stone itself with 14 karots can
cost up to $50 dollars. However, when you buy
a peridot ring or necklace or whatever, it costs
way more than that because the stone is cut, and also placed in some type of gold and processed.
