Peridot is gem-quality olivine.
Olivine in general is a very abundant mineral, but gem quality peridot is rather rare.
Olivine has also been identified in meteorites and on the Moon and Mars.
Peridot is one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color: an olive green. The most valuable color is considered a dark-olive green. Peridot olivine is sometimes mistaken for emeralds and other green gems.
Peridot was used in antiquity in Egyptian Jewelry designs.
