Question H2O2 from H2O & O3?

ok, I read this is possible via a random comment somewhere on the internet, so I'm trying to do some research to see if it's true, but most of the sites I come across are these 'alternative health' sites that I don't really trust.. anyways, on with the question. I'm trying to:

6,H2O + 2,O3 -> 3,H2O2 (Hope I balanced that correctly)

now I read one place that simply passing ozone through cold water should produce hydrogen peroxide.

I read elsewhere that it needs to be treated with UV, but further research seems to show me that's to decompose H2O2, not to produce it, the only way I see this method working is to first treat the H2O with UV to break off electrons, and then bubble through the O3 afterwards..

now I could be wrong with all of this.

but the reason I'm hoping this is the case is because I'm currently recording a YouTube series where I literally start with rubbing rocks together (To make stone tools) and build my way up to (fairly) modern tech. and this would be a fairly easy way to make hydrogen peroxide, which will make synthesis of other chemicals and purification of elements much simpler.

Thank You!

I'm sorry I can't help with this any more than I am, but the equation is
3 H_2 O + O_3 --> 3 H_2 O_2
