Re: Where to find Peridot?
The Arizona peridot coveted by many faceters comes from the Apache Indian reservation. Sorry to have to tell you this, but legal rights to mine and collect peridot on the reservation are closely guarded and if you are caught wildcatting or trespassing there you are subject to arrest by the tribal police.
I am not aware of any legitimate fee digs for peridot in Arizona. Be sure and let us know if you discover any and good luck in your quest.
