The peridot, the August birthstone, is one of the few gemstones that comes in only one color. Peridot's rich, green hue with a slight touch of gold is caused by very fine traces of iron. The ancient Romans were quite fond of this gemstone and its radiant green shine, which remains unchanged even in artificial light. For this reason, they nicknamed the gem the 'emerald of the evening.'
