Peridot in the market and its characteristics
Although peridot is widely distributed and produced, there are very few high-quality peridots available on the market. The value of peridot is affected by several factors, including color, clarity, carat and cutting. In terms of color, high-quality peridot is pure and uniform in color. The purer the green, the higher the value. In terms of clarity, natural peridot often contains more black solid inclusions or gas-liquid inclusions, so it should be noted that less inclusions increases the value. In terms of weight, with carat (ct) as the unit, the higher the weight, the rarer the peridot, and the higher its value;
In terms of cutting, peridot should be perfectly faceted to show the ‘fire’ of the gemstone. Peridot has an extremely high double refraction – when you look closely through the gem, you can see two of each pavilion facet. Fuli prides itself on its exceptional cutting techniques and ensures that each facet optimizes the double refraction of the gemstone.
