Early records indicate that the ancient Egyptians mined a beautiful green gem on an island in the Red Sea called Topazios, now known as St. John's Island or Zabargad.
Some believed that it protected its owner from terrors of the night, especially when it was set in gold. Others strung the gems on donkey hair and tied them around their left arms to ward off evil spirits.The word peridot comes from the Arabic faridat, which means gem. Most peridot formed deep inside the earth and was delivered to the surface by volcanoes. Some also came to earth in meteorites, but this extraterrestrial peridot is extremely rare, and not likely to be seen in a retail jewelry store.
