Leos are born between July 23 and August 22, and their birthstone is the Peridot, Sardonyx, or Spinel. Peridots are a mysterious shade of green, almost olive green, while Sardonyx is an opaque mix of reddish-brown and white. Spinel is almost as versatile as tourmaline or sapphire, and is available in virtually any color.

About Leo Birthstone Rings
Because Sardonyx comes in different colored layers, it has historically been used to carve cameos, using the contrasting colors to create depth and display the ingenuity of the carver. It is also one of the few gemstones more associated with men’s jewelry than women’s. By coincidence, Peridot can sometimes look like the slightly smoky green used in camouflage, it also can have some masculine associations and appears in men’s jewelry as well.
Leo Birthstone Ring Designs
Peridot is associated with light and clarity of thought, while Spinel is sometimes associated with growth and luck in new ventures.
Crown Jewels - In the days before testing equipment, Spinel was often confused for other stones. The Black Prince’s Ruby in the British Crown Jewels is actually a Spinel.
Mines - Some Peridots came from outer space and landed on this planet as part of meteorites. There is a beach in Hawaii made almost entirely of Peridot sand.
- Mystical Healing - Peridot has long been associated with the sun and it is believed to help brighten one’s wit and eloquence, as well as promote responsibility, forgiveness, and compassion.
