Peridot belongs to the forsterite-fayalite mineral series which is part of the olivine group.
It is one of the "idiochromatic" gems, meaning its color comes from the basic chemical composition of the mineral itself, not from minor impurities, and therefore will only be found in shades of green. In fact peridot is one of the few gemstones found in only one color.
Historically important sources in Egypt have been superseded by today's main sources in Burma and Pakistan.
