Summer is in full swing at OROLATINA® and like many retailers throughout the world, we are preparing for the forthcoming Christmas Season. Our education section is in development and we expect to release it to the general public in early October. Having been working with the developers in-person, I am happy to report it will be a nicely laid out, easy-to-use-resource for the Internet user.
This month’s featured 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.
OROLATINA® carries a beautiful selection of affordable Peridot Jewelry set in Fine 14K Gold and offers a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee on all stock jewelry purchases, and Free Insured Shipping on all Domestic USA Orders.
