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.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
