Beryl (beryllium aluminum silicate) is one of the most important gem minerals. Beryl is colorless in pure form; it is the many different impurities that give beryl its varied coloration. The most famous beryl is emerald, but other beryl varieties include aquamarine, heliodor and morganite. The name beryl is used for the red and golden varieties, which are simply called red beryl and golden beryl. Beryl is quite a hard stone (7.5-8 on the Mohs scale), so it's suitable for all kinds of jewelry.
As Always never disappointed in any gemstone I purchase from this site. I have never had a problem. Thank-You Gemselect for offering such a comprehensive variety . I will continue to order from this site.
Gem select is the most trustworthy web site for gems. What I see in the picture is exactly what I get. Size is indicated by carat weight, and not the picture size, as they are trying to give an up close view of the gem I am hoping to buy. It was so easy to find the stones I was looking for at a price I could afford.
