Cut - Don't worry about it. Peridot can be shaped into nearly any gemstone shape, including round, oval, square, pear, emerald, and many more. But avoid those which seems misshapen or not proportionate.
Clarity - As a basic rule, get ones with no inclusions or less. Some small marks may be present, but overall, peridot gems have decent clarity by nature.
Carat - This is generally the major determinant of the size of gemstones, and in turn, determines the price to some extent.
