| florette - peridot - FL3-B-PER4
GEM WEIGHT: 4 carats total
impossibly cute - a threesome of tiny peridot bubbles interspersed with tiny beads for a flowery petal effect on a golden bonded multi-filament micro cord which lets the gem ''float'' on your neck
choice of accents/spring ring clasp:
14kt gold fill
14kt/18kt solid gold
triplet hangs 3/8''
peridot itself is a common mineral, and it is often found in lavas and in peridotite xenoliths of the mantle, which lavas carry to the surface; BUT gem quality peridot only occurs in a fraction of these settings.
peridot can be also found in meteorites - that's pretty cool...or hot, depending when you find one
