August’s Birthstone, The Peridot

We are now officially halfway through the Summer, and for those of you who had clear skies you were able to witness a beautiful Blue Moon last night (A Blue Moon is the second of two full moons in a single month)!  This Summer, the OROLATINA® team began making significant headway in moving further towards becoming a Designer Affiliate and Brand in it’s own right.  More to come on this subject and a new website theme is currently in flight with our developers.  We are very excited about the new look & feel, as well the new opportunities OROLATINA® is pursuing.

OROLATINA® is also preparing for the forthcoming Christmas Season.  Our education section is completed and we expect to have additional updates to it over the next few months.

August’s Birthstone is the Peridot!  The Peridot measures 6.5-7.0 on the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness.  Peridot is one of the only gemstones in existence that is available in but a single color, Olive Green.  The intensity of the color can vary depending on the concentration of iron in the silicate material that forms the crystal.  Dark Olive Green is the most sought after and valuable of the colors.

Peridots (also known as gemstone quality Olivine) is mined in numerous places throughout the world including North Africa (Egypt), The United States (Arizona, New Mexico and Arkansas), Australia, Myanmar, Norway and Sri Lanka.
