August's well known birthstone is none other than the Peridot! This precious gemstone is known for its rich, green color and great age. You are unlikely to simply stumble upon a peridot. Why?
They are found in cooled volcanic rock
... and in meteorites!
Let that sink in for a bit.
The power of the peridot is incredible, especially poignant now in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Peridot is considered a tonic for the whole being, warding off many physical ailments. It is also considered a ‘feel good’ stone that nourishes the ego, promoting good mental health. The peridot helps a person see their own light and recognize that they are deserving of love.
Did you know August has another birthstone? Recently, the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) included the Spinel as August's birthstone. Here at Pavé, we really do love spinels. We're also happy for the people with August birthdays. You see, peridot is green. While it can take on different shades of green, it is a green gem. Some may seek jewelry that can take on more romantic colors, such as shades of red. Now, you or your loved one can have more options as to what the color will be for an August birthstone piece of jewelry. Spinels range in color from pale lavender to a ruby-like red.
