Peridot is the name given to gem-quality olivine, a mineral formed deep within the Earth's mantle. Highly prized by the Egyptians and Romans, this vibrant gemstone is still as popular today and looks stunnning when teamed with sterling silver in jewellery.
Birthstones are gemstones associated with particular months of the year or zodiac signs. They are often made into items of jewellery. These can make wonderful gifts for people with birthdays in that particular month.
