august birthstone: peridot

I love a good pop of green (as illustrated by my company logo). peridot, the august birthstone, is a gorgeous, rich olive green. 
the gemstone is believed to symbolize strength and posses healing powers.
peridot is often found in lava deposits and meteorites.
the largest cut peridot in the world is 310 carats and is on display at the smithsonian.
