Peridot is one of the few gemstones that comes in a single color; peridot is found only in green.
The finest quality peridot comes from Mogok in Burma, although Pakistani peridot is now highly regarded as well.
Other deposits are found in Australia (Queensland), Brazil (Minas Gerais), China, Kenya, Mexico, Norway (north of Bergen), South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and the United States.
Peridot is not typically treated or enhanced in any way.
The ancient Romans called it 'evening emerald' since its color did not darken at night, but could still be appreciated by candlelight and the light of a campfire. It is a gem especially connected with ancient Egypt, and some historians believe that the famous emeralds of Cleopatra were actually peridot gems.
