Peridot is a biome-specific gemstone introduced with Biomes O'Plenty. It appears as an ore, an item, and decorative block.
Peridot Ore can be discovered in grassland biomes. A current list of these biomes can be found under Peridot Biomes.
An Iron Pickaxe or better is required to mine Peridot Ore. A Silk Touch Pickaxe can be used to collect the block of ore rather than the Peridot drop. The ore drops one gem with an unenchanted pickaxe. With fortune, the ore can drop up to four gems, one extra per level of fortune. Peridot Ore cannot be smelted.
9 Peridot can be crafted into a Block of Peridot for storage or decoration. These stack to 64.
