The Beryl family includes Aquamarine, Morganite, Heliodor and Goshenite (White Beryl)


Beryl’s are part of a family of silicate minerals that have similar chemical and physical properties but vary in color based on the trace elements present in each crystal.

Pure Beryl would be colorless; it is the trace elements that give Beryl’s their colors. For example, chromium, vanadium and iron create greens; manganese creates pinks, peaches and possibly reds too, and iron is believed to create yellow.

Some of the more well-known types of gem Beryl’s include:

Aquamarine – blue to blue-green variety

Emerald – green variety

Morganite – peach to pink variety

Green Beryl – lighter green variety

Lesser known Beryl’s include:
