A relatively rare silicate mineral found in igneous and metamorphic rocks around the world, Beryl is generally clear, while its variations in color are better known by other names: Emerald (green), Heliodor (yellow), Aquamarine (blue), Morganite (pink), Golden Beryl and Red Beryl. The word "beryl" is derived from the Greek beryllos, which refers to a "precious blue-green color-of-sea-water stone." Our Beryl strands include a number of examples of the varieties, including Aquamarine and Morganite.
