Cute and delicate pear shaped peridot in sterling silver
These earring stud posts are delicate and cheerful! The apple green peridot is bright and contrasts strongly with the sterling silver earring stud posts. The pear shape of the gemstones is unique and attention catching. Wear them for a party or all the time! This is the perfect gift for an August birthday.
Did you know that the gemstone peridot is always the same color? It is always a gorgeous light lime green! It is commonly found in the volcanic rock basalt as the mineral olivine. When I was working on my thesis, I had to collect a lot of samples of basalt (65 to be exact!) for geochemical analysis. I spent ridiculous amounts of time pounding on rocks with a large hammer (and trying not to squish fingers, toes or the dog) looking for the perfect color olivine to take home as a sample! It was surprisingly difficult…
Peridot is the birthstone for August and the Zodiac stone for Libra. Its beautiful green color comes from iron and magnesium in the gem. These peridot are pear shaped, 7 mm long and 5 mm wide at their widest point. They are set in sterling silver.
