Peridot is a French word derived from the Arabic word 'Faridat', which translates to 'gem'. This gorgeous green stone is said to ward off any fears & insecurities and increase self-confidence & joy for the wearer. 

While most gemstones are formed within the Earth's Crust, Peridot is one of the few exceptions. They form much deeper within the Earth's mantle and are brought to the surface by tectonic or volcanic activity.

It is one of the few gemstones that only occurs in one colour and ranges from yellow-green to dark-green. The intensity and colouring of the stone is dependant on the iron content within the crystal structure.   

Peridots can be given on a 16th Wedding Anniversary.
