At 4.5 billion years old, peridot is made up of the remnants from our solar system’s birth — found in pallasite meteorites, as well as in lava and deep in the Earth’s mantle. Peridot gems have been found in Egyptian jewelry from the second millennia, recorded in the Bible, prized by the Romans who called it the “emerald of the evening”, found in medieval churches, collected during the Crusades, desperately sought during the Baroque period, and was once given by Napoleon to Josephine as a symbol of his undying love.
