Since we won't see much of this material, we turn our buying attention to Myanmar (Burma), China, USA, Africa and Australia. We most often use peridot from Myanmar which is a vivid light green and has minimal inclusions.
The rich and variant greens of peridot make it a gemstone that can serve a lighter summer wardrobe well. Every opportunity to add color to your life should be had. Shucks, it's an eco-friendly color to boot. Peridot has been thought to protect people from "night terrors" as well.
If you are all about bling, these gemstones may not be for you...but if you enjoy celebrating life by exploring our earth and seeing what she has to offer, think about peridot.
