Joie de Vivre jewelry

The small peridot gemstone charm is just the right size to represent a leaf bud emerging at an axil or tip of a stem. Peridot is the gemstone variety of the mineral olivine, which can have structure with more iron (fayalite: Fe2SiO4) or magnesium (forsterite: Mg2SiO4). Most peridot is on the magnesium end of the scale although the distinctive green color results from small amounts of iron. Olivine is an abundant mineral with high heat tolerance, enabling it to survive in meteorite samples. In the presence of water, however, olivine readily transforms into serpentine, talc or magnetite. Sally Silica Tetrahedra is isolated in peridot; the tetrahedra attach with other elements and not themselves. The thin twisted link sterling silver chain is like a delicate stem from which the bud grows.
