Tribe of Asher
PURE AND PRECIOUS
The color of Peridot bears a resemblance to pure olive oil, with its strong green and yellow tones. The Perdot’s relationship to Asher is that the land owned by the tribe in ancient Israel featured a wealth of olive oil. According to Biblical folklore, it was Serach, the daughter of Asher (Jacob’s 10th son), who gently broke the news to Jacob that his long-lost son Joseph was still alive through music, so not to startle him. This sign of intellectual maturity is a credited to her great upbringing by her father, Asher.
