GREEN WITH ENVY

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Jewels -

See­ing green? So is BAZAAR. Get filled in on the mys­te­ri­ous peri­dot gem­stone, birth­stone for the month of August. #1 As­so­ci­ated with pros­per­ity and good for­tune, its name is be­lieved to be de­rived from the Greek word “peri­dona”, mean­ing “giv­ing plenty”. #2 A rare va­ri­ety of the min­eral olivine, peri­dots are formed from deep in­side the earth’s man­tle and brought to the sur­face by vol­ca­noes. #3 Un­like many other gems, peri­dots ac­quire its glow­ing colour from its own min­eral com­po­si­tion, rather than trace im­pu­ri­ties.

Peri­dots are also known as a pro­tec­tive charms against evil and dark­ness
