Since Peridot is August's birthstone, I thought I'd root around for some quick facts about the "emerald of the evening." * Peridot is the one of the very few gemstones that occur in a single color. * The green color is caused by traces of iron. * 80% - 95% of all Peridot production comes from Arizona, USA. I'm a big fan of the gem myself. I just bought the gorgeous strand you see here at a Santa Monica, CA bead show. I wonder what I'll make...
