Today’s prompt from Write Alm is Olivine. It’s a nice word to roll around your tongue but I didn’t know what it meant. It felt like it should be describing a peaceful, fulfilled emotional state – “she looked olivine as she gazed out to sea”. It’s actually a series of mineral, one of the earth’s most common in fact. It is generally olive green in colour, hence the name. In it’s gemstone form, as peridot, it was used a lot in Egyptian jewellery and is sometimes called evening emerald.
