Gemstones for the month of August

Gemstones for the month of August

01 Aug, 2022 | Gemstone | Gem Selection

For August, the birthstones chosen are peridot, spinel, and sardonyx. Peridot birthstones are discovered in meteorites and the solidified lava that brought them from Earth's mantle. Peridot is also a birthstone that was generated under harsh circumstances. August's sardonyx birthstone has been around for more than 4,000 years. Explore these three August birthstones and find the ideal present for anyone born in August.

Peridot gemstones

  • ·        The stone is first pronounced, "pair-eh-dough."

  • ·         This beautiful green object is called Chrysolite. It is a component of meteorite and lava.

  • ·         What a superhero you are when you wear this very rare August birthstone...

  • ·         Ancient Egyptians mined peridot, which has always been connected with the Sun and brightness.

  • ·         They employed peridot as a charm to drive serpents into the sea, and some believe Cleopatra's emerald collection was really peridot.

  • ·         There are numerous green hues of peridot, ranging from yellow-green to pure pine green.


  • ·         Ruby and sapphire have long been mistaken for spinel, a beautiful gemstone.

  • ·         Spinels have been found in some of the world's most renowned rubies, including the Timur Ruby and the Black Prince's Ruby, among England's crown jewels.

  • ·         Spinel is currently a sought-after gemstone because of its beauty, brightness, hardness, and a stunning spectrum of hues.

  • ·         Even magnetite, one of the spinel group's members, may be magnetic.

  • ·         For centuries, sailors relied on this spinel to magnetize their compass needles.

  • ·         We now have two beautiful spinel pieces in stock, which are ideal for an August baby that prefers a gemstone that isn't as well-known as diamonds.


  • Sardonyx is the most obscure August birthstone, yet it was the first. 

  • Sardonyx blends sard with onyx to form a reddish zebra-striped stone with white streaks. 

  • Sardonyx has been a stone of strength and protection since ancient times. 

  • Sardonyx is Onyx and layered Sardonyx. 

  • Another Ancient Egyptian favorite.

  • They utilized it to ward off evil spirits and curb crime.

  • Sardonyx is good for psychic energy and concentration.

  • It restores bones and boosts immunity.

  • Yellow-red, amber, reddish-brown; brown or white bands


August birthstones are beautiful. All three stones have strong traditions. You're tapping into a rich heritage when you wear a gemstone ring or necklace. These stones have shaped centuries of beliefs, superstitions, and culture. These stones have been desired by monarchs, queens, and other people for millennia.
