The Generations "August Birthstone Journal" represents the birth month of someone very special. Each birthstone is carefully hand set in solid sterling silver to create something both meaningful and beautiful. All birthstones are made of genuine Swarovski crystal and have been carefully selected to most accurately match the likeness of the traditional gemstone associated with each calendar month.
August—Light green peridot, symbolizes strength. It is sometimes called the evening emerald for its light green color. It was once believed that the green peridot crystals found in volcanic ashes were the tears of the volcano goddess, Pele.
