Origin of the Name

Because the golden beryl is golden in hue, like the sun’s radiance, the name combines the Greek term “Helios” and the gift “Doros,” which means “gift from the sun.”

Features and characteristics

The term “golden beryl” refers to the yellow gemstones found in beryl. It is also known as “yellow beryl” due to its color, and “golden beryl” due to its appearance. It, like aquamarine, is primarily formed from pegmatite deposits and has exquisite hexagonal columnar crystals. It is usually a huge block of ore when discovered, but it rarely reaches the grade of gemstones. “Gem grade” refers to an ore being regarded as “possible to become a gem” while still in the rough stage. Natural ore beads are occasionally referred to as “jewel grade” by merchants selling natural ore beads. The term “gem grade” refers to the former.

Alias for golden beryl

There is a school of thought in the business that “Heliodor”, “Golden beryl”, and “Yellow beryl” are three distinct jewels. Yellow Beryl is yellow-green, while Golden Beryl is golden yellow. However, there is no benchmark to separate these three types of gemstones in identification, which may be one of the reasons for the difficulties of promotion. Another hypothesis holds that the reason of the color is “golden beryl” and “yellow beryl,” and the cause of the color contains uranium oxide is termed “golden beryl,” but because there are numerous ores that cannot be distinguished, this argument is not widely accepted.

The world’s largest finished golden beryl

Among the finished products is the world’s largest golden beryl, which is on exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. The stone is a brilliant golden yellow and measures 2,054 carats (around 410 grams).

Maintenance method

Wipe the filth away carefully using a soft cloth. If the dirt cannot be removed, it can be cleaned with running water. Although it can endure steam and ultrasonic cleaning, if the gem is broken, it may break, so exercise caution. Crack is a gemstone phrase that refers to cracks that emerge within the gemstone as a result of impact following crystal formation or temperature fluctuations.

Furthermore, it has now been found that the golden beryl will fade if exposed to direct sunlight or other light sources for an extended period of time, thus it is best to store it away from direct sunlight.


After being sliced, the golden beryl will have a lovely brilliance. Almost all golden beryls available on the market are faceted cut. Facet cut is a cutting process that uses numerous facets to maximize the brilliance of stones. Furthermore, “a bright band of light resembling a cat’s eye”, golden beryl with a cat’s eye effect (Chatoyancy), is occasionally excavated.

The Value of Each Color

The huge, translucent golden beryl is exceedingly valuable. In terms of color, golden yellow is the most expensive, followed by dark yellow, yellow-green, light yellow or slightly brownish yellow, and internal Golden beryl, which contains substances and has a low transparency and is relatively more common on the market. As a result, nearly all of the golden beryls carved into balls and used as energy stones are this color.

Can be turned into aquamarine after treatment

Pink morganite, which is also beryl, is the same as golden beryl. It will turn blue aquamarine after heat treatment. As a result, the golden beryl is occasionally marketed as the well-known and popular aquamarine. With today’s technology, it’s nearly hard to tell the difference once they’ve been circulated and heated.

Golden beryl as an energy stone

Fortune, exorcism, hope, joy of life

It is supposed to be a stone of hope that encourages individuals towards a joyful existence, capable of removing anxiety and disappointed feelings. It can also assist people go forward by dispelling evil spirits inside themselves and around them. Furthermore, it has the potential to increase wealth.
