I'm so excited to post about this lovely August's Birthstone

Peridot is the birthstone for the month of August.

"a green semi-precious mineral, a variety of olivine"

Peridot is named after the French word peritot, meaning gold, because the mineral can vary towards
this color.

 This gem is excellent for use in recovery from tobacco or inhalant dependencies, as well as other addictions.

 Associated with the sun, Peridot has been prized since the earliest civilizations for its protective powers to drive away the forces of darkness. Set in gold and worn around the neck or bound to the left arm, it was used as a charm against sorcery and magic, evil spirits, night terrors, and madness. It cured cowardice, calmed anger, as well as brightening the wit.

Well, I don't believe these spiritual thingies, but what I do believe is that Peridots can be found in lava, meteorites, and deep in the earth’s mantle. Peridot is similar to the emerald but softer in intensity.
Well...that's Peridot too!
Anyways I'm sure y'alls heard about this gem before. It's because Peridots have long been called “an Evening Emerald,” for under artificial light, the stone glows a brilliant green. Cool...
