Beryl is a mineral composed of beryllium aluminum cyclosilicate. It is a very popular mineral in all of its forms. The hexagonal crystals and can be found in small to very large sizes. Pure beryl has no color and is known as “goshenite,” but transparent crystals with inclusions and impurities are different colors and are known as gemstones with different names. Colors range green to blue to red, yellow, and white. Green beryl is caused by traces of chromium. The deep green variety of beryl is emerald, one of the most precious gemstones. The light green shade of beryl is known simply as “green beryl.” Green beryl is sometimes heat treated to create aquamarine. Yellow or golden beryl is known as “heliodor,” and blue beryl, caused by traces of iron, is known as aquamarine. Pink beryl is “morganite,” and the deep red variety of beryl, is known as “red beryl” or “bixbite.” Bixbite is very rare and therefore expensive. It can only be found in two locations in Utah.
