Natural Peridot Cushion Shape 5.21ct
Green Flash. Surfers, explorers and meteorologists describe the rare "green flash" which sometimes occurs at the horizon over the sea, just as the sun sets. Never seen it? This remarkable stone is a close approximation. This is an exceptionally large example of this enigmatic treasure. Peridot is the traditional birthstone for the month of August, perhaps because August is when the night skies are filled with meteors known as the Perseids. Peridot deposits have been discovered in the remains of fallen stars, adding to their nearly surreal appeal.
