Peridot, the birthstone for August, has historic "powers" for healing and warding off nightmares. Formed deep within Earth, this gem is brought to the surface in many ways, but most commonly as a result of volcanic eruptions. Found in lava, meteorites and formed deep within the Earth's mantle, Peridot is one of the most intense birthstones ... a 'fiery' and passionate stone. Much of its ancient lore revolves around this love and passion, and bringing good fortune to lovers and others for the year to come.
Also known as the "Evening Emerald", peridot has a gentler, lime green hue. The Egyptians, most notably Cleopatra, wore peridot instead of emeralds. Known to them as the "gem of the sun", it was originally found near Egypt and the Red Sea but today can be found all around the world.
This is one of the few gems that has been found in an extraterrestrial fashion. This "alien" has been found on Mars and the moon and in the dust of comets. So for all you with August birthdays, you are truly out of this world!
