This intriguing rock encrusted with large nodular areas of peridot (gem-quality olivine) crystals is called a Peridot or Olivine "Bomb" because the peridot masses, which formed deep in the earth’s crust, were carried to the surface by basaltic magma and gasses and ejected into the atmosphere during a volcanic eruption. This impressive specimen features patches of translucent, yellow-green to dark olive peridot crystals, along with bright green diopside grains and black pyroxenes, covering a matrix of grey basalt.

Peridot, the birthstone for those born in August, is said to increase intuition, reduce stress, and stimulate personal growth.

Dimensions:  Peridot bombs are rough rock in varying natural rock shapes, sizes are a loose Approx. and can vary significantly

     Small:  roughly 2-4” rock

     Medium:  roughly 4-6” rock

     Large:  roughly 6-8”

Rating Olivine Bomb
Great sample of an olivine bomb; size was as descibed and quality was high. It came on time and well packaged. However, shipping costed just as much as the product.

I didn't expect to be as large as it was. it does make a great addition to my collection with every thing promised in the picture. Is great for explaining things about geology to kids.
