Interesting Facts About Golden Beryl

Golden beryl is a member of the beryl family. This includes the emerald which has a trace of chromium to give it a fabulous green color. If nature includes iron in one form it becomes aquamarine, iron in another form becomes golden beryl.

Golden beryl was first discovered in Namibia in 1913. The gemstones are found in a very coarse-grained igneous rock that also produce aquamarine. The mining company that found it named it Heliodor meaning 'gift of the sun' after the Greek words for sun 'helios' and gift 'doron'. Golden beryl may also be found in Brazil and Madagascar. The gems with an intense banana-peel yellow are rarely found in these places though.

Golden beryl is more affordable than aquamarine as it is the lesser known of the two gemstones. The crystals often grow very large because of the complementary match between the iron and beryl. Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. has the largest faceted golden beryl (2,054 carats) on display.

Golden beryl is a very durable gem, 7.5 - 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness making it excellent for wearing every day.
