Peridot is one of the few gemstones that can be found only in one color, although the shades of green may vary from light yellowish to dark brownish-green. The depth of green depends on its level of iron content. The ancient Romans called it 'evening emerald' since its color did not darken at night, but could still be appreciated by candlelight and the light of a campfire. Peridot symbolizes those that are gentle, fair and wise. Shop our peridot designs below!
