Canary Beryl

The bright yellow cousin of the more popular varieties of the beryl family, emerald and aquamarine, this often overlooked beauty bears the color of pure sunshine.  Alternatively called “golden” beryl and sometimes “Heliodor” (derived from Greek and meaning “gift from the sun”), this stone is hard, generally free of inclusions, and perfect for all types of jewelry.  Occasionally it can be found in unusually large sizes.  One piece in my collection features an 80-carat pear shape, virtually flawless, with which I made a large cuff bracelet and surrounded the center stone with yellow sapphires and diamonds.

The largest cut yellow beryl – weighing over 2,000 carats – is on display in the Hall of Gems in Washington D.C.’s Smithsonian.
