The origin of the name Beryl is thought to derive from the Sanskrit word 'veruliyam', an old term for the gemstone chrysoberyl. It is also believed to derive from the Greek Word 'beryllos' which means crystal and was originally applied to all green gemstones but was later used for Beryl alone.

Legend says that Beryl was once used to ward off demons and evil spirits and will protect the wearer from danger while traveling. Other legends also indicate that Beryl can be used to bring good luck, cheerfulness, energy, and can give eternal youthfulness.

Color Description
Beryl is colorless in pure form, but different element impurities give it a wide variety of colors to choose from. It has a vitreous luster and can be transparent or translucent but is frequently tinted by impurities. Members of the Beryl family include the Aquamarine, Emerald, and Morganite. Beryl is rated at 7.5 to 8 on Moh's Scale of Hardness and is a durable stone that is ideal for all jewelry purposes.
