If you were born in the month of August, your birthstone is the Peridot. This vibrant stone is the color of a lime with it’s origin being connected to volcanic activity. The word Peridot means “gem” in Arabic and it was called “gem of the sun” by Ancient Egyptians. The Peridot signifies individual strength and it promises growth in the near future. This color adds a a hint of pizzazz to anything you wear especially if you choose a dress like Beyonce from the House of Dereon Spring 2010 collection. Take a peek at these other lime flavored looks and have a Happy Birthday in Style!
