August's birthstone is Peridot
Peridot is the birthstone for August and the 15th anniversary gemstone. The Egyptians called it the “gem of the sun.” Peridot is thought to protect its owner from nightmares. This gem is also thought to bring it's wearer power, influence, and a wonderful year. Peridot is the gem variety of the mineral olivine. Its chemical composition includes iron and magnesium, and iron is the cause of its attractive yellowish green colors. The gem often occurs in volcanic rocks called basalts, which are rich in these two elements. Happy Birthday to all our August's babies! We wish you a happy and joy filled day.
