Peridot is sometimes referred to as an "Emerald" although Peridot is distinctly a different shade of green. This August-Peridot Birthstone is transparent and its color varies from yellow green to brilliant light green. The stone is mounted on a shiny top-quality stainless steel and is available in medium size. The stone facets are placed in exact geometric relation to one another when the stone is being cut what makes the shades of light green change when the rays of light reflect the surface.. Make a perfect match with our August Zirconia flower or August heart Birthstone Italian charms for your stone collection. Celebrate your 16th anniversary of marriage in brilliant light green!
