It’s August and everywhere we look we’re surrounded by the color green! Whether it’s the vibrant green of the grass, or the subtly different shades of green of the leaves on the trees, we see this soothing color everywhere at this time of year. It’s therefore probably no coincidence that the official birthstone for August is peridot!
Peridot is one of the few gemstones which forms in only one color – in this case, a shade of olive-green. Often, Peridot comes from the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona which also makes it a very American gemstone. But did you know that Peridot can also be found in meteorites, and that they have even found traces of peridot on Mars? Another interesting fact about peridot is that, unlike other gemstones which are formed in the Earth’s crust, peridot is actually formed deeper down in molten rock and comes to the surface through earthquakes and volcanoes. The only other stone that shares this characteristic is the diamond.
We want you to live life vibrantly this August, so we are offering between 15-25% off select in-stock peridot jewelry this month. That’s a huge savings to you if you’re buying for yourself or any August baby. Peridot also makes a great gift for that nature-lover in your life or for anyone who you think could perhaps use a little TLC and calming effect in their life – peridot is thought to have a balancing effect on its wearer and to improve one’s health and well-being. We have a great range and selection of Peridot jewelry in store, from simple stud earrings to pendants to rings, so we are sure to have something for everyone on your gift list.
August is the month to drink in nature and enjoy all that summer has to give us, to get away from those tiny screens and immerse ourselves in the vibrancy of nature. That’s why this month we’re challenging you to Live Life Vibrantly. Drop by our store and let us show you some of the amazing items we have for you. You’ll be glad you did!
