Peridot and Olivine specimens on matrix
Green Peridot and Olivine specimens on matrix, typically a grey basalt rock backing stone – available in three sizes.
These pieces are from the San Carlos Indian Reservation in Arizona, USA – a world famous locale for Peridot crystals, both on and off matrix.
Peridot is also sometimes known as Olivine. It occurs only in a nice green colour, and is often used as a gemstone. The crystals on these specimens are, of course, not large enough for any gem usage.
These pieces are quite fragile. Because the crystals are sitting on the matrix they could be easily dislodged in the postage – so we pad them as well as possible.
