Peridot: August Birthstone Tree of Life Necklace
A brilliant lime green Peridot for August Birthstone Tree of Life necklace adorned with a lime green colored Swarovski crystal embedded in the trunk as a close resemblance of the natural peridot that goes for the month of August. Peridot is one of the three Birthstones for the month of August. Associated with prosperity and good fortune, Peridot is also known as “the Evening Emerald”. This whimsical tree of life design has swirls and red tipped balls on the burly roots. Wire wrapped copper pendant hangs on a leather necklace.
Ancient Egyptians called peridot the “gem of the sun,” believing it protected its wearer from terrors of the night. Egyptian priests believed that it harnessed the power of nature, and used goblets encrusted with it to commune with their nature gods.
Some historians believe that Cleopatra’s famed emerald collection may have actually been peridot. Through medieval times, people continued to confuse these two green gems. The 200-carat gems adorning one of the shrines in Germany’s Cologne Cathedral were long believed to be emeralds as well, but they are also peridots.
SIZE: pendant is approximately 70 x 45 mm (2 x 2.5 inch).
NECKLACE: adjustable 2mm leather cord with an attractive unique knot on top of the tree.
