August Birthstone - Peridot

Peridot is the child of volcanic action. Tiny peridot crystals are sometimes combed from the black sands of Hawaii. Peridot was favoured by pirates, considered powerful amulets against all evil, and when set in gold, were said to protect the wearer from the terrors of the night. They had medicinal uses too. If fashioned into a chalice from which medicines were drunk, they intensified the effects of the drug.
