Orbits I with Peridot

Orbits I with Peridot


Sterling silver circles surround beautiful, natural peridot stones.

Peridot, the birthstone of August, is a unique gemstone in that it mostly exists in one color, a distinctive lime green. In ancient times it was believed that this stone was a gift of Mother Nature to celebrate the annual creation of a new world. It is said to protect against nightmares and to bring the wearer power, influence, and a wonderful year. As peridot is a gemstone that forms deep inside the Earth and brought to the surface by volcanoes, in Hawaii, peridot symbolizes the tears of Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes. Today, most of the peridot supply comes from Arizona; other sources are China, Myanmar, and Pakistan.

The earrings are 1-1/2 inches long and the earwires are handmade from sterling silver.
