Choudhary G. (2015) Peridot-Polymer Composite. The Journal of Gemmology, Vol. 34, No. 5, pp 25-26

Recently, a translucent yellowish green, round faceted bead was examined that turned out to be a composite, where tumbled pieces of peridot were held together in a colourless to light yellow transparent polymer matrix. Identification of peridot was done using absorption spectrum, doubling of inclusions and Raman spectroscopy.
