You may or may not have come across the peridot but it is a stone worth taking a second look at. Associated with love, the peridot is a stone that signifies truth, faithfulness and loyalty.
Unlike some other gemstones, peridot is a gemstone that forms deep inside the Earth and brought to the surface by volcanoes. In Hawaii, the peridot symbolizes the tears of Pele, (story of Pele here) the goddess of fire and volcanoes. Today, most of the peridot supply comes from Arizona; other sources are China, Myanmar, and Pakistan. This gemstone comes in several color variations ranging from yellowish green to brown.
