Gifts from the volcano goddess Pele

So while the Kilauea volcano has done tremendous damage as it has erupted, it has also done some (at least to me) amazing things. The most obvious being creating nearly a mile of additional  coastline to the island.

As this article however, also points out, it’s created what is know as Olivine or the gem Peridot. The article is entitled “Hawaiian Volcano Offers Gifts of Gemstones Delivered from the Sky” by Melissa Breyer over at Treehugger. They’re even green to boot.

Sincerely-
