August's birthstones are peridot and spinel!

Peridot is named after the French word peritot, meaning gold, because the mineral can vary towards this color. It is also the stone given to celebrate the 16th year of marriage. Peridot has a very long written history. Ancient papyri record the mining of these stones as early as 1500 BC. The spinel gemstone comes in a wide variety of vibrant colours and is believed to encourage great passion, devotion and longevity.
