Peridot gemstone is the green assortment of the Olivine Gathering of minerals. Olivine is not an individual mineral but rather a gathering of minerals that incorporates Fayalite, Forsterite, Liebenbergite, Tephroite and Laihunite. Fayalite (Mg2SiO4) is the iron rich individual from the Fayalite – Forsterite mineral arrangement, Forsterite (Fe2SiO4) is the magnesium rich part. Peridot (Mg2Fe2SiO4) is the green assortment of Forsterite containing both Iron (Fe) and magnesium (Mg). Peridot’s shading can differ from pale to rich green (for which Peridot is acclaimed) to dark colored. The impressive variety in shades of green to darker is dependant on area of root and measure of ferrous iron. The perfect green Peridot has an iron substance of around 12-15%.
