Beryl: value, properties and to whom the stone is suitable for the sign of the zodiac

One of the first known to the people of gems was Beryl. Only the ancient peoples have not yet known that many of the minerals produced by them were Berill derivatives. Such nuggets were confused with other stones, called other names. Today, Beryl is implied as an independent gem and a whole group of gems of similar composition and origin.

History and origin

Beryl is known to people since the time of ancient civilizations. The countries of the Middle East, Greece, Egypt, India - all these nations knew about the gem of more than six millennia to us. Only here under the concept of "Beryl" or "Berillos" ancient meant many transparent and solid stones of green, blue or yellow shades. Therefore, Berill could be called chrysoprase, and Berill himself was confused with quartz.


The study of the ancient Egyptian civilization made it possible to find out that the Egyptians were known many gems, in particular Beryl. This mineral decorated the tomb of some pharaohs of the ancient state. Scientists suggest that the Egyptians had their mineral deposits, but the story about them is silent.

The same mining sites that are developing today are at the other end of the African continent, without having a relation to the territory of Egypt. There is also the opinion that along with the cops (outdated facilities for ground and underground development of minerals) of many gems, Berylla owned by Tsarina Cleopatra.

The history of the mintral name thread stretches through many languages. The original adverb, from which the name of the stone occurred, is considered to be Dravida. So, the name of the gem is equal to the title of the Indian city of Belur. From the Dravidsky word gradually passes into Sanskrit, from there to Prakrit and Pali languages. Further, the Greek name pokes into Latin, where he means "precious stone of sea water." Ultimately, in Russian, the name "Beryl" fell from Latin through Romanesque adverb.

And you know that Beryl is one of the twelve stones, adorned by the pecotor of the High Priest Judea. Which of the varieties of the mineral was conquered on a breastplate, an unknown fact.

Today, under Beryl, the jewelers imply only a golden-yellow type of mineral, which transparent crystals are endowed with a certain composition and properties. Such a nugget is called "noble beryl", believed by the gem of the second order of the first group of the classification of precious stones. Its value is only a bit inferior to the price of an emerald, and some rare samples are more expensive than diamonds.

An ignoble beryl is used in industry as a source of beryllium - expensive and valuable metal. To detect the deposits of the raw materials of geophysics, a special method called beryllometry is used.

Location in Nature

The best global places of the noble beryl are considered:

  • Colombia.
  • Ost-India.
  • Brazil.

The occasionally crystals come across in the territory of Mozambique.

Ordinary beryllams are rich in Sweden, France, Bavaria and Elba Island. Russian sections of the noble variety of mineral are the Urals and deposits in the Sverdlovsk region. As well as samples of yellow and transparent gems, the east of the Kola Peninsula is rich.

Physical properties

The stones of the beryl group are a mixture of aluminum and beryllium oxides and most of the silicon dioxide. The presence in the composition of impurities of other metals, including iron and manganese, determine the color of the crystals. Sometimes in the chemical composition of the mineral detects a meager share of uranium.

Berill is characterized by hardness, inferior only to corundes and diamonds, as well as resistance to alkalis and acids. With high temperature mode, the mineral melts.

Mineral varieties

Beryl refers to minerals that are rich in "derived" nuggets. Many of them are known under independent names and are considered as separate precious gems. So, the stones of the beryl group are considered:

  • Aquamarine is a second-order gemstone of a saturated heavenly blue, blue-blue or bluish-green. The price of the stone is equal to the price of the zircon, Topaz, noble opal. aquamarine

  • The noble beryl is a transparent colorless, yellow or light green mineral of the second order of classification. Noble Beryl
  • Bixbit is a very rare variety of red. The second name is "Red Emerald". The findings of this mineral are single, so the price of nuggets is installed separately for each instance. Bixbit
  • Heliodor - Golden Mineral. Heliodor
  • Sparrow - pink, light red or orange-red stone. It is also called morganite. Vorobyevit
  • Augustitis - rare gem of dense-blue. Augustit
  • Gaenitis is a transparent nugget. Goshrenit
  • Bazcite - Mineral of light blue color. Baccit

Red and pink gems are considered the most rare from the genus Berylov. "Red Emerald" was once mined only in the only deposit of the United States of America. After the flooding of that mine, bixbit mining stopped.

About 3.5 thousand copies of the faceted red stone remained on the planet, each of which is stored in museums or private collections. The price of any of these samples is freshelically high, and you can only purchase such a gem with auction. Also estimated nuggets of blue shades.

How to recognize fake

As such, artificial beryl does not exist at least officially. All attempts to grow synthetic crystal were not crowned with success. The most successful imitation was able to create Austrians in the middle of the 20th century. This stone was a mixture of an ordinary colorless beryl and a synthetic emerald.

Nevertheless, today there is a risk of stagge into experimental attempts by underground laboratories. To distinguish such a fake, despite the difference in physical or chemical properties, will independently be difficult. We'll have to resort to help professional. The same applies to linden stones, which is glued cheap and expensive gems.

At the same time, a thin plate of a natural expensive gem is attached to the cheap mineral. Identify such falsification can only in the laboratory.

If you are not lucky to stumble upon a glass or a toned cheap stone, a deception can be accepted alone by such signs:

  • Real Beryl is much stripped glass, so leaves a scratch on it. Glass fake on the glass of the trace, of course, will not leave.
  • The presence of defects. Any bubbles, cracks, inclusion when inspection under the magnifying glass - a sign of the naturalness of the mineral. Only fake will be perfect.
  • Traces from sharp items. Natural gems of the beryl group scratched with a knife or the key is impossible. But the toned fake is easy.

And then, If the seller on request to check the hardness of the stone answered with refusal, this is already a reason to doubt. Do not forget also about such a thing as a quality certificate for minerals.

How to wear

So, Beryl is recommended to buy not on lunar days, but according to the Kalendar of the Archbishop of the Rhinesky, according to which a good time for the acquisition of Mineral - October and November month.

Beryl is a stone from the family of silicates. A single point of view who first opened the mineral, there are no scientists, but this gem was already known in antiquity almost all over the world. The species of this crystal are a huge variety, you probably heard their names, but did not even guess that it was about Beryll. Depending on the specific subspecies, it may be precious, and semi-precious, and the usual crystal.

What stones are we talking about? Well, welcome to the exciting world of crystals. In this article we will tell about the varieties and properties of the Berill stone: physical, chemical and magical.


History of Mineral

On the territory of the Middle East Beryl is known for six millennia. The tomb of kings and temples were decorated with a stone from the inside. In ancient Egypt, it was mostly used yellow beryl, but it is unknown, where it was the Egyptians that it was mined. Perhaps the copy was on the territory of the current Somalia or Ethiopia, but now nothing is known about the mineral deposits in North Africa.

Mineral Beryl

They knew about the precious stone Beryl and in ancient India. One way or another, and in Sanskrit his name is known. Together with Indian traders and the mineral, and the word "beryllos" fell into Europe. In the ancient world, any transparent gemstone of the green or blue shade was so called. The subtleties of the chemical structure ancient Greeks and the Romans understand, of course, could not, and therefore were unable to distinguish silicate from quartz.

Modern jewelers assume that Beryl is a gemstone of golden color from the silicate family. And other varieties of crystal have their own names. For example, green beryl is called emerald. Such a classification has already arisen in a new time.

Mineral field

Mineral Beryl The imaging of centuries mined in India. Also, Argentina and Canada can also boast of major gestures. A very beautiful and clean emeralds are mined in Colombia, in the USA - polychrome stones, in Brazil and Madagascar - Aquamarins. During the time of the USSR, the development of beryl fields also conducted in Russia, but now the production volumes fell. However, the copy of Siberia, the Urals and Transbaikalia are still functioning.

Yellow Beering
The popular location of Berylla is the city of Coimbature in India.

Mineral varieties that are not interested in jewelers are mined worldwide. Despite the inconspicuous look, from the point of view of chemistry they do not differ from the precious fellow, the composition of the crystal lattice is the same. There is no less, the inephious species does not mean that minerals do not use the dispute. Beryllium, metal needed for nuclear energy is paid from such stones.

Beryllium is a very dangerous substance. In mines where it is mined, people work in just hellish conditions. They suffer from skin inflammation, pneumonia, cancer tumors. The process of metal smelting strongly harms the environment. Some of its connections are generally prohibited for the development, storage and transportation.

Physical and chemical properties

Beryl crystal can be both transparent and completely transparent. It refracts the sun's rays in such a way that it used to be used for the manufacture of magnifying glasses. A stone melts at a temperature of from 950 degrees Celsius, and it becomes muddy, sharp edges smoothed.

Some varieties of beryl have a property of changing color when heated. For example, a pinky morganite can become bright red, and transparent stones acquire a beautiful blue shade. This is used to reflect crystals. Some gems glitter glass, others - fat.

In the chemical formula of Berylla, in addition to beryllium, also includes aluminum, silicon oxide and other impurities. Depending on their concentration, the stones are:

  • Bigless;
  • weakly alkaline;
  • Eliminate.

The higher the alkalis content, the more densely the crystal and the stronger it resists the action of acids. The highest alkalinity in rocks mined in Ukraine.

Varieties and colors

Coloring options at the mineral is a huge amount. Basically, the color of beryll is determined by impurities that fall into the crystal lattice during the formation of a gem. Some special "beryl color" does not exist. Varieties and shades have a lot of stone, you can choose a decoration that is suitable for you.

The most famous varieties of Berylla:

  • EmeraldEmerald - Perhaps the most expensive and beautiful among your family. The largest and most transparent among emeralds are more expensive than diamonds. Chrome and Vanadium give him a deep green shade.
  • Green BerylGreen Beryl - so called a simpler version of Emerald. The mineral is less transparent, it is cheaper, but the jewelers still love him. Such a crystal is often trying to issue a real emerald.
  • AquamarineAquamarine , Also known as Blue Beryl, also has a fairly high price. It can have both a shade of the sea wave and a more rich azure color. Pretty rare and dear stone, a unique color to it is attached to iron and chrome.
  • MorganitVorobyevit (Morganite) - Pink Beryl, which is mined mainly in the pins of Madagascar. Tender coloring him gives magnesium. This also love for a unique soft glow.
  • HeliodorHeliodor (Davidsonit) - Yellow Beryl, whose name is translated from Greek as the "gift of the Sun". It has a huge amount of color options, from saturated honey to gentle amber. The way the Golden Beryl sparkles perfectly in the sun, always fascinated people.
  • GoshrenitGoshrenit - White gem, the best samples of which are almost completely transparent. He is also called beige beryl. A skilled jeweler may so skillfully treat such a stone that it will be almost impossible to distinguish from a diamond.
  • AugustitAugustit - A rare variety of gems, very expensive. Crystal saturated dark blue color is quite often forged.
  • MasseurMasseur - Another noble beryl with a rich blue tint. Some belong to August, because they are very similar. The machine very quickly loses the color, if it is warm or the sun rays will fall on it. Correctly process the crystal so that it retains the color and depth longer - the whole art.
  • POSTERITEPOSTERITE - Stone, which contains many alkali metal salts. The best rosterita patterns can boast a gentle light pink tint.
  • PetsottitaPetsottita - Saturated pink gem, but very dangerous. The composition of his molecule includes cesium, so this kind of beryl is afraid to handle and wear.
  • BaccitBaccit - Light blue mineral similar to Aquamarine. True, the shade of the sea wave does not attach iron, but scandies.
  • BixbitBixbit - Red Beryl, very expensive and rare. It is compared with emerald for the price and beauty. Nowadays, only one bixbit deposit is known, and it is constantly poured soil waters. Because of this, mining can be interrupted at any time, and the cost of the gem jums up to heaven.

Check for authenticity

Attempts to create an artificial stone Beryl still have not been crowned with success. Of course, sometimes fraudsters are trying to issue a regular glass or a piece of plastic for a real gem, but it is very easy to remove them on clean water. It is enough to try to scratch a crystal blade or needle. You can't damage this gem.

Ring with Emerald
So as not to stumble upon the fake, it is necessary to check the authenticity of the stone.

For a high-quality fake mineral, it is necessary to completely recreate its chemical composition, unique for each field. As a result, make a bracelet from such a perfect falsification will be as expensive as from the real stone, and the meaning of the fake will disappear.

Sometimes it happens that one type of beryl is issued for another, which costs more.

To distinguish the emerald from the cheaper, but similar stone, you will need some kind of heavy liquid, for example, bromophorm. The real jewel will be sinking in such a fluid, and cheap - swim. You can also put the gem under the ultraviolet lamp. Semi-precious analogues of the emerald will scold bright glare, and the genuine crystal is more dull light.

Usually try to fake emerald or aquamarine. Now such works are carried out from pure scientific enthusiasm, there is no commercial meaning in them. There are methods in which the cheap stone is given the desired shade with the help of heating, but so far they are only being developed.

It happens that the emerald glued into several layers, and the thin plate of expensive stone is only an outer layer. In this case, you need to look carefully, as Berill looks like in a picture in a jewelry laboratory, you can easily distinguish the fake you can hardly.

Application area

Precious varieties of mineral use, of course, for jewelry with beryllah. The rim is made of metal, which is best suited to a specific variety of stone, usually the more expensive gem, the more the noble metal is chosen.

Geliodorom ring
Ring with heliodorom

Crystals that are not interested in jewelers go for beryllium smelting. This is a solid, but fragile silver-white metal resembling aluminum. The substance applies:

  • To dop alloys. Have you heard about beads, bracelets and rings from "Gypsy Gold"? This is processed by Berillion Bronze.
  • For the manufacture of X-ray tubes.
  • In atomic reactors as a neutron reflector.
  • In laser technology.
  • As material for spacecraft and aircraft.
  • To get rocket fuel.
  • For thermal insulation of laboratory furnaces.
  • For sound vehicles.

Berill's Care

There are no special recommendations for stone care. Mineral is well withstanding any household chemicals, so you can wash it almost anything. The best sudden solution of the ammonia is best.

Pendant with aquamarine
Remove the jewels with stones when they are engaged in sports or physical work.

Decorations with beryl is best to store wrapped in a soft fabric. The stone is quite fragile, it can be accidentally broken or scratched.

In the care of emeralds, however, there are nuances. Unlike most of the types of beryl, they are rather soft, so during long-term contact with other stones can be deformed. Keep emeralds separately or only with other emeralds.

Medical properties

History of origin


Berill stone is one of the most ancient famous minerals.

His story has more than 6,000 years. When archaeologists found the first copy of beryl decorations - beads, it turned out that they were at least 6,000 years. And this is the finished product!

How the stone was formed, chemist scientists and geologists will help. The process of magma crystallization in the process of the formation of the Earth formed a residual melt with high fluidity, which contained such elements as alkali metals, inert gases.

The alloy filled out free spaces in the rocks and at high temperatures - from 400 to 700 degrees - gave the beginning of new minerals. Such natural fields are called pegmatite veins.

The first stages of the process of formation of Beryl began deeply in the depths of the Earth, follow-up in higher layers.

Sometimes there are minerals of huge sizes: Berillas were found 18 m, 6 m. Large copies for the jewelry industry are mined in India, the best and qualitative formed in Ukraine.

Place of Birth

Berillia fields on planet set - Urals, Transbaikalia, Brazil, Canada, USA and others.

Appearance - Colors and types



The most expensive from berylles is often valued above the diamonds. Color from dense green to light green.



The most famous mineral from the genus Berylov. Blue tones prevail, but there are instances of the sea wave.

Artificial Beryl

stone berylExperiments on the creation of synthetic berylov were not crowned with success. Several samples were created, but it turned out to distinguish them from natural stone. The description of the process for a long time was held in secret.

Experts know, in which region the stones are produced, which impurities are characteristic of this region, therefore it is impossible to recreate the natural composition of emeralds.

If externally stones can be similar, then experts check the proportion of the mineral.

To do this, use heavy liquid like bromophorm. Natural emeralds are drowning, and light fakes pop up. Also, there is a difference when checking for fluorescence: synthetic stones are brighter compared to natural emeralds.

The fakes were mostly expensive emeralds who tried to recreate in artificial conditions.

At the moment, these works are conducted only from scientific interest, as practical value does not represent. The thermal method of obtaining stones is studied, which is most close to the natural processes of berylov formation, the method of increasing the shell on a cheaper colorless beryl.

The most common fake is gluing emeralds in two or three layers. At the same time, the top is the highest quality, and others are cheap.


The Berill stone is the general name of the whole group of precious and semi-precious stones used in the jewelry industry.

It is believed that the ancient Egyptians mined some varieties of Berylla, for example, Yellow Beryl, but the location of the reasons is now forgotten. Modern African fields of this stone for residents of ancient Egypt would be unavailable due to territorial remoteness. They are in South Africa.

Fake diamond

During the 20th century, in different countries of Europe, as well as in the USSR, Beryl was repeatedly tried to synthesize, but did not achieve special success. The synthetic crystals obtained as a result of experiments differed from natural stone either by physical properties - hardness, refractive indices of light, density - either by chemical composition. The greatest similarity with True Beryl had composites obtained in 1960 in Austria. They had the basis of an ordinary transparent beryl, on which the layers of the synthetic emerald were increasing.

At the moment, the synthetic gems of this group, capable of fooling a professional jeweler, no. But research and experiments in this area are continuing.
