What is olivine

Olivine is an olive-green mineral with a glassy luster commonly found in igneous and metamorphic rocks. It’s also known as peridot when in gem form.

This mineral forms through magma crystallization and is abundant in volcanic regions like Hawaii, Iceland, and of course, our Canary Islands. Due to its bright green hue, olivine is often used in jewelry as a semi-precious stone.

Beyond jewelry, olivine also has industrial applications. As a hard and durable mineral, it’s used as a flux in steel and glass production, and in the manufacturing of ceramics and glazes.
