Os cristais de peridoto são explorados pelo menos desde o início do primeiro milénio a.C. na pequena ilha de Zabargad, situada no Mar Vermelho, nas imediações da península de Ras Banas. A ilha teve o nome de Topazos, e os cruzados dedicaram-na São João (de onde o nome de São João que por vezes lhe é atribuído), mas ignoraram as suas riquezas minerais, um segredo durante muito tempo bem guardados dos estrangeiros. O jazigo de peridoto de Zabargad é historicamente o mais celebre e o mais importante. A exploração encontra-se actualmente abandonada.

Weitere US-Lagerstätten finden sich in New Mexico (Buell Park, Kilbourne Hole und Potrillo Mar). Zu den weiteren Peridot-Abbaugebieten gehören andere Orte in den USA, China, Sri Lanka und Pakistan, wo 1994 neue Vorkommen entdeckt wurden.

As peridot is a magnesium-rich variety of olivine (forsterite), the formula approaches Mg₂SiO₄. Its green color is dependent on the iron contents within the structure of the gem. Peridot occurs in silica-deficient rocks such as volcanic basalt and pallasitic meteorites. Peridot is one of only two gems observed to be formed not in the Earth’s crust, but in molten rock of the upper mantle. Gem-quality peridot is rare to find on Earth's surface due to its susceptibility to weathering during its movement from deep within the mantle to the surface. In the Middle Ages, the gemstone was considered a stone that could provide healing powers, curing depression and opening the heart. Peridot is the birthstone for the month of August.
