The Ancient Egyptians believed that Peridot was sent to Earth by the explosion of a star and carried its healing powers. In fact, they weren’t wrong as peridot has been discovered in certain kinds of stony-iron meteorites in modern times. Peridot is the national gem of Egypt, known to locals as the Gem of the Sun. Most peridot, like these, were found in basaltic rocks, pushed up by volcanic forces from the Earth’s upper mantle.
