Owners and carriers of the peridot stone often see peridot as a source of happiness, success and prosperity. Primarily, this reputation makes the peridot stone sell and appreciated by many people who can afford to buy it at their price.
The name peridot is believed to have come from two words of origin. The first is the French word peritot which literally means vague or unclear. The other is the Arabic word for pearl or faridat. The second common term for peridot is "poor man's emerald". The peridot is typically characterized by its single-color color - a fresh green to varying degrees. The amount or intensity of the green color in a particular peridot sample is directly affected by the iron in its crystal structure, since it is essentially a compound of iron and magnesium. The color can come in the range of yellow-green to algal green or brown-green shades. These shades are one of their most unique features, showing a full range of refreshing green color.
Among the commercially produced peridot is the largest superior 310 carat and it is known as a Kashmir peridot. This peridot of Pakistan's origin is located in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. Other Kashmir peridot gemstones are usually 100 carats in size, but are the special types of peridot that remain unmatched in comparison to their other counterparts.
The gemstone peridot is closely related to olivine. It is often considered an offshoot of forsteritic olivine, but in itself it has something that makes it unique and stands out as a gem for all seasons.
