August Birthstone Peridot Care and Cleaning

Peridot ranks between 6.5 and 7.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness. This attribute makes them highly vulnerable to damage compared to diamonds, rubies, and sapphires.

Peridot can also scratch softer gems such as pearls or opals.

To clean this gemstone, use a soft cloth and soapy water. Let it air dry to avoid scratches from a towel. You can also detoxify it by dipping it in water overnight. Ultrasonic cleaners and steam cleaning are not recommended for this August gemstone.
