Peridot is a yellowish-green gemstone that is a variety of the mineral olivine. It is known for its striking mix of bright summery greens and golden tones. Peridot’s color comes from its chemical composition, which includes iron and magnesium. It is often found in volcanic rocks called basalts, which are rich in iron and magnesium.

Peridot is sometimes called chrysolite and is one of the few gemstones that only occurs in one color. It is often confused with other gems, including topaz and emeralds. Peridot’s sparkling green hue appears to shine brighter in the dark, earning it the nickname “evening emerald”. 

The ancient Egyptians mined peridot on the Red Sea island of Zabargad, which is the source for many large fine peridots in the world’s museums. The Egyptians called it the “gem of the sun”. 

People who are allergic or sensitive to olivine should not wear peridot on their body. This prevents inflammations, skin irritations, or headaches.
