Additional gem information:
From www.geology.com, Olivine is also the mineral of the gemstone known as "peridot." It is a yellow-green to green gemstone that is very popular in jewelry. Peridot serves as a birthstone for the month of August. The most valued colors are dark olive green and a bright lime green. On Mohs' scale of hardness, peridot ranks 6.5 to 7 and displays a vitreous and oily luster. Much of the world's peridot used in mass-production jewelry is mined at the San Carlos Reservation in Arizona. Most of the stones produced there are a few carats or less in size and often contain visible crystals of chromite or other minerals. Higher quality and larger peridot crystals are mined in Pakistan and Myanmar. There, crystals of olivine are found in metamorphic rocks.
