Peridot is one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color: an olive-green. The intensity and tint of the green, however, depends on the percentage of iron that is contained in the crystal structure, so the color of individual peridot gems can vary from yellow, to olive, to brownish-green. Did you know?....Peridot crystals have been collected from some pallasite meteorites! Some peridot is ancient: it's found in pallasite meteorites, remnants of our solar system's birth.

It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth. ... Its name comes from the Latin lapis, "stone," and the Persian lazhuward, "blue."
