    Acting as a birthstone for the month of August, peridot is a gemstone shrouded in mystery. Its name has no clear origin – some sources suggest it is a derivative of the Latin paederot, which refers to a variety of opal, whereas others claim that it comes from the Arabic faridat, meaning ‘gem’. Its recorded use dates back as far as 1500 BC, where its symbolic powers seemingly ranged from warding off nightmares and promoting bravery to subduing negative feelings of anger and guilt. 

     

    One of June’s many birthstones, moonstone gets its name from the gorgeously unique appearance of its surface, the mesmerising light of which resembles that of the moon. The moon’s close associations with love, so famously explored by romantic poets such as Shelley, have led moonstone to likewise become a lover’s stone. Beyond this, the moon’s cyclical renewal has left moonstone with similar symbolism of renewal and rejuvenation.

    An October birthstone, opal is thought to be named simply after the Sanskrit upala, meaning ‘precious stone’ – its historical and symbolic associations, however, are far more complex. Dubbed the ‘Patron of Thieves’, this gemstone was once believed to enable the wearer to turn invisible, and medieval women prized them as they were said to prevent fair hair from losing its lustre. Now, though, the opal is more commonly seen more broadly as a stone of protection and love.
