Jewel of Africa would like to wish Happy Birthday to you if you were born in August! This month's gem, the Peridot was considered a favourite for the Pharaohs, and the ancient Egyptians called it the "gem of the sun" due to the discovery of its remnants in the solar system's birth 4.5 billion years ago.
While Zambia has over eight different gemstones, Peridot is not one of them. As a substitute for the August born, you can choose to wear a green tourmaline instead which is mined locally, responsibly sourced and contributes significantly to economic empowerment of Zambians.
Learn about the qualities of the August birth gem Peridot and the alternative local version by watching Jewel of Africa's video via the link below.
