Joie de Vivre jewelry

Peridona is Greek for "to give richness", an apt description for the fresh yellow green peridots found in this pendant: rich in color, rich in style, but not rich in silica! Peridot comes from the mineral olivine, a nesosilicate ("island" silicate) forming in silica-poor igneous rocks like basalt and peridotite. It is one of the first crystals to form in cooling lava, and its tolerance for high heat makes it useful for manufacturing purposes. Olivine has been found in lunar rocks and stony-iron meteorites; cross sections show pockets of the yellow-green crystal embedded within the meteorite material. Most gem quality stones come from Pakistan, Myanmar and Arizona. Faceted peridots are set in sterling silver in this necklace by the talented artisans of SilverRocks, and the pendant is paired with a fluid sterling silver squared snake chain.

Cost: $59.00 USD
