Superb Peridot 5 Plus Carats AAA Color 16 Diamonds Custom 14K White Gold Ring. The Peridot is the finest color and quality imaginable. The ring size is 7-1/4. Weight is 5.2 grams. The peridot is 11 mm wide. From you finger to the top of the Peridot it measures 9 mm high.There are 8 diamonds set on each shoulder of the ring. The diamonds are H color and VS2 clarity. They measure 1 point each. This looks like a green diamond.The very best Peridot I have seen in 50 years. It is the natural astrological stone associated with Leos but can be worn by any sign. Peridot Chrysolite. The chrysolite is a very beautiful yellow-green gem which derives its name from two Greek words meaning "golden stone", by which name it is referred to by Pliny. It varies in color, and although exactly the same stone it bears different names; when of a deep bright green it is known as Peridot, and when of an olive green it is called Olivine. The stones are found in Egypt, Ceylon, and Brazil, and specimens have been found in meterorites and the lava of Vesuvius. The Peridot was much valued by the ancients, the name signifying in Arabic precious stone, and it was at one time considered of more value that the diamond. These were the only gems set in transparent form by the Romans who wore them for protection from enchantment and against melancholy and illusion. Marbodus says they should be set in gold (gold being the metal of the sun) to dispel the vague terrors of the night. During the Middle ages these stones were worn for foresight with regard to future events and for Divine inspiration and eloquence.
