August Birthsone Jewellery

Peridot, August's birthstone, is lime green in colour and is believed to bring power and influence to its wearer. A very old gemstone, peridot has been found in Egyptian jewellery from as early as the 2nd millennium BC when the stones were discovered on a volcanic island in the Red Sea. Although there isn't a great deal of folklore to accompany this stone, native Hawaiians believed that the crystals were the tears of Pele, the goddess of fire. This striking stone is said to attract love and quieten feelings of anger, as well as soothing nerves and warding off negative emotions.
