Robert Michael mines for Peridot on his own mining claim located South of Hartsel, Colorado. He faceted two of those crystals into 7x5mm oval gems weighing .8 carats each and set them in 14kt Yellow Gold Earrings.
The Peridot crystals that Robert unearths at his claim tend to be on the small side, but the color and clarity are fantastic. Additionally, this location produces gemstones that consistently display only a very slight yellow tint mixed with the green, which gives Peridot such a unique color. The yellow-green mix is mostly determined by a trace amount of Iron in the Peridot crystal.
Peridot is an August Birthstone.
