This gemstone beauty counted cross stitch pattern entitled Peridot designed by Tracey Marvel Kramer showcases the Peridot gemstone and how fabulous it looks against our model’s skin tone. Peridot is the birthstone for the month of August. It was named after the French word peritot which means gold due to its variance in color. Peridot is the national gem of Egypt, and it was known as the gem of the sun. Miners working to unearth these gems worked late into the night due to their extreme radiance and glow. They would place a marker at the spot for daytime retrieval for the next day. Reference is also made in the Bible of Peridot as one of the layers in the foundation of the city of New Jerusalem, and according to ancient Hebrew history, it is one of the gems listed in Aaron’s breastplate. Peridot has been found in Tanzania, America, Pakistan, Viet Nam, China. The symbolic traits associated with Peridot are purity, strength, creativity, vibrancy, energy and natural curiosity.
