(SOLD) Natural Peridot - Apex Step

60.00

From Wiki:

Peridot is one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color, an olive green. The intensity and tint of the green, however, depends on how much iron s contained in the crystal structure, so the color of individual peridot gems can vary from yellow to olive to brownish-green. The most valued color is a dark olive-green.

-- MOHS: 6.5 - 7.0
