'Peridot' comes from the ancient Greek which translates roughly as "to give richness". Some controversy about this gemstone exists today if only in the pronunciation of the word "peridot". The first is almost French-like in its inflection: 'pare ee doh'. The second is more English sounding and somewhat more respectful of the final consonant: 'perry dot'. Either way, the peridot remains, as the ancient Egyptians referred to it,' the gem of the sun'.

Specifically, the peridot is a variety of the mineral 'olivine'. In Biblical times, as noted in Exodus, a variety of the peridot known as chrysolite was said to be the stone which represented Simeon, the second son of Jacob, on the Hoshen or breast plate of Aaron.

Ranging in color from a yellow-green to chartreuse, the most popular shade of the peridot is a vivid lime green with a slightly gold cast the gold color being due to traces of iron. Considering that olivine is the source mineral, it's ironic that the ideal peridot should have no 'olive' tones at all.
