August Birthstone – Gemstone History

The word peridot means ‘gem’, and is derived from the Arabic ‘faridat’. The August birthstones had its earliest abundant origins in St John’s, an island near Egypt. During the Crusades, vast amounts of August birthstones were looted from the Mediterranean. Called occasionally the ‘evening emerald’, the peridot then became a feature of European cathedrals.

Eygptian kings prize the peridot highly. These August birthstones found their way into a lot of royal regalia, though sometimes they were mistaken for emeralds.
