Peridot 12.5x10.5mm Oval Checkerboard Cut 7.03ct
Pakistani kashmir peridot 7.03ct 12.5x10.5mm oval checkerboard cut. The gemstone was mined in Pakistan and cut in China.
Our annual journey to the Tucson international gemstone show sometimes yields spectacular finds that even Jewelry Television has never seen before. The 2014 show was no exception, as our gemstone team discovered some unique peridot in rough form. Hailing from the legendary Kashmir region of the Himalayan Mountains in eastern Pakistan, this area yields some of the finest peridot in the world. Only discovered in the early 1990's, this find has redefined the meaning of fine quality peridot! Found at altitudes nearing 16,000 feet, mining operations are seasonal, meaning production is sporadic and supply is always limited. Once our buying team secured the rough material, they gave careful instructions for it to be fashioned into expertly cut gems. Each gem boasts exceptional strong, minty color, looking much more like mint garnet with none of the olive green hues we usually associate with peridot. Historically, only a few stones out of many hundreds have this 'minty' color, making it extremely rare and desirable. The perfect addition to any gemstone or jewelry collection, we invite you to discover the richly exotic beauty of Kashmir peridot today!

August's birthstone, peridot, is a relatively inexpensive, beautiful gem with a pedigree dating back as far as early Egyptians. Among its accolades, peridot can count being a favorite among royals and clergy, used to adorn everything from a queen's crown to a knight's sword. Peridot jewels were actually among Cleopatra's beloved treasures, though she believed them to be emeralds, as gems were then classified solely by color. Prized for its all natural, unenhanced range of colors, peridot is the gem variety of olivine and exhibits colors ranging from golden lime greens to rich grass greens.
