Robert Michael mines for Peridot on his own claim located South of Hartsel, Colorado. He faceted two of those crystals into 6mm round gemstones, weighing 1 carat each. Robert then set the gems in this 14kt Yellow Gold Post 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 a very slight yellow tint mixed in with the green. The Arizona Peridot has a stronger yellow presence, and are easily differentiated. The yellow-green mix is mostly determined by the amount of Iron present in each Peridot crystal.
Peridot is one of the August Birthstones.
