Royal Doulton Figurine Birthstone August :
The birthstone for August is peridot, a light green precious stone originating from the Arabic ‘faridat’ meaning gem and symbolising strength and protection. Peridot comes from the volcanic mineral Olivine turned green by iron, ranging from yellow gold-green to the most valued deep lime green. In Ancient times the Egyptians treasured peridot and believed it offered protection from bad dreams. Embellishing the gold necklace of this elegant petite figure a sparkling lime-green Swarovski®
crystal represents a peridot reflected in the light green floral detail of her gown.
