- Peridot has been mined for over 3,500 years!
- Peridot is the only gemstone (other than diamond) that is created in the magma of the earth's upper mantle (about 20 - 55 miles below the surface of the earth).
- Peridot is brought to the surface by volcanic eruptions that push the magma up through the crust of the earth.
- Many believe the "emeralds" in the ornate jewelry of Cleopatra were actually peridot stones.

Hi I'm Julie, and I love to share bits of joy.
Like creating special (and fun) family traditions, celebrating the small moments with big hugs and tiny tea parties, and how I’m embracing mama-hood with a smile...and maybe even a little extra time for myself.
I think that family holds so much magic, from babyhood to adulthood. So, it’s important to me that we celebrate all of it - in my own family here in Lompoc California, and in the LGP family all over the world.
I’ve made this blog into a little place where we can do all of those things together, with teacups and toadstools, tied up with a bow.
