August

The mellow glow of the Peridot, a soft, light green under the starlit sky or lantern has earned this lovely gemstone the title ‘The Evening Emerald'.

“Wear a Peridot or for thee, No conjugal fidelity, The August born without this stone,`Tis said, must live unloved alone”.

While the person who first said this poem is lost to history, most people know the rhyme that goes with this gem. The stone is of igneous origin, formed due to volcanic activity, and is found in shades of pale green, olive-green and lime. Ironically, the Peridot has long been revered by pirates as a talisman to ward off evil.
