Olivine and is used to create a gem called peridot.

Olivine is actually quite common in Hawaii. There’s an entire beach made of olivine on the Big Island.

Oh, Kilauea. Blue fire, volcanic tornadoes, baby volcanic cone building, and the violent vaporization of the island’s largest lake – what’s next in your box of flamboyant volcanological wizardry?

Well, as has been reported in a few tweets, it appears that it’s been raining gemstones, specifically olivine, onto the ground.
