Peridot is August's Birthstone August 11 2015, 0 Comments

Do you know a bright and beautiful person born in August? Their birthstone is the vibrant Peridot! Found in almost every corner of the world, this celestial gem has also been found in lava flows and in meteorites. Its bright green comes from the amount of iron content in the stone, and there is even an entire island referred to as the "Peridot Island" in the Red Sea. Pretty fascinating stuff!

At Silverado Portland, we carry a variety of Peridot jewelry from different artists, such as Sara Danielle (shown above). Come on in and see us for the perfect gift for you or a loved one!
