Birthstone for August

August Birthstone.

Peridot and Green Aventurine are the birthstones for August. The peridot birthstone is known for being formed under extreme conditions, as it can be found in the hardened lava that carried it from deep within Earth's mantle as well as in meteorites that traveled from outer space.

Green Aventurine, know as the "Stone of Opportunity" and thought to be the luckiest of all crystals. This beautiful stone aligns conditions so "opportunities" are inevitable. Green Aventurine releases old patterns and habits so new growth can take place.
