Peridot, also called Chrysolite and Olivine.
The most beautiful stones come from the border area between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
However, the peridot as a gemstone also exists in Myanmar, China, the USA, Africa and Australia.
Stones from East Burma, now known as Myanmar, have a vivid light green and fine inclusions with a silky shine to them. Peridot from Arizona, often used in native Indian jewellery, exhibits golden and browns tones.
