Interesting Information For Peridot

Peridot is the gem quality variety of forsterite olivine. The name of the gemstone is believed to come from either the Arabic word faridat meaning 'gem' or the French word peritot meaning 'unclear'.

Peridots are one of the few gemstones that come in only one color. The depth of green depends on how much iron is contained in the crystal structure, and varies from yellow-green to olive to brownish green.

Gem quality peridot is rather rare. Peridot is also often referred to as "poor man's emerald". Peridot crystals have been found in iron-nickel meteorites. It is found in Brazil, Upper Burma, Minas Gerais and Egypt.
