Robert Michael mines for Peridot on his own mining claim located South of Hartsel, Colorado. He faceted one of those crystals into a 7x5mm pear-shaped gemstone weighing .7 carats. Robert then set the gems in this Sterling Silver Pendant.
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 with the green, which gives Peridot such a unique color. 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.
