Chrysoberyl: magical properties and uses
Chrysoberyl is a very popular mineral today. The name of the stone is due to its beautiful golden color (in Greek chrysos means golden).
Various versions are known as to whether chrysoberyl is a gemstone or semi-precious.
Most experts tend to classify gem in the first category. The cost of the product with chrysoberyl depends on the size of the ornament, the complexity of its cut, color variations, and other factors, which we will discuss later.
Features of the composition and types of stones
Chrysoberyl acts as nothing more than beryllium aluminate. The bulk of the stone is represented by combinations of aluminum and beryllium oxides. Of course, in some cases there are impurities — as a rule, it is chromium oxide and iron.
The most valuable are those minerals that include chromium, because they have the strongest characteristics, as well as excellent light performance.
In addition, jewelers give a high rating to those types of specimens, which are characterized by an attractive effect of a cat’s eye.
The main varieties of chrysoberyl found in nature most often are:
As a rule, in natural conditions there are stones of golden and yellowish colors. More rare variations of chrysoberyl are stones of reddish or brownish hues (this color adds an increased percentage of iron content in the composition).
Very rare and most valuable coloring — purple.
But even more rare minerals are clear stones, which are characterized by high reflectivity. Occasionally there are also gems with a greenish tint, which indicates an increased titanium content in them.
Experts claim that beryls themselves are quite rare stones. Under natural conditions, there are not many gems in which they are composed.
For this reason, chrysoberyl has a relatively high cost.
Chrysoberyl due to its chemical composition is an indicator of increased alumina, as well as reduced silica acidity. This is one of the explanations for why the stone is mainly found in dolomite and limestone.
The sites of the most famous mineral deposits are in Madagascar, Ceylon, Brazil, the United States of America and, of course, the Urals — the famous emerald mines. In addition, due to modern technologies, the creation of artificial stone samples has become possible, but they do not have the same properties as natural counterparts.
Chrysoberyl is a rather rare kind of gemstone, which at all times had an increased popularity, especially minerals with the effect of a cat’s eye. Traditional jewelery is rarely made from the cat’s eye, although its increased hardness is quite suitable for these purposes.
In cases where the composition of the stone exactly meets its chemical formula, it is devoid of any color. Stones of this type are not very popular, because as a result of moderate light refraction and slight dispersion, they clearly lose to diamonds, zircons and even white sapphires.
On the contrary, high value are minerals, on which the effect of the internal iridescent play of light (known as asterism) is well manifested and which are processed in the form of cabochons.
