 August's birthstone is peridot. The commonly used name for peridot in mineralogy is olivine, due to its green color, but the meaning of the Greek derivative peridot is uncertain. The color of peridot varies from olive green, yellow green, to brownish. Most of the important deposits are in the Red Sea on the volcanic island of St. John. Peridot is 6.5-7 on the Mohs' hardness scale.

 

This August birthstone seems somewhat of a secret splendor. Unless you are an August arrival, few have seen how peridot green can gorgeously glisten in the sun. Try a pair of Jennifer Eagle Collection 7mm natural peridot earrings mounted in 14K gold and you can guarantee some awesome August "oohs" and "ahhs!"
