Chrysoberyl is a beryllium aluminium oxide mineral that belongs to the oxide and hydroxide class of minerals. appears as trilling or twinned hexagonal crystals. Despite the similarity of their names, chrysoberyl and beryl are two completely different gems.
The three main varieties of chrysoberyl are:
Chrysoberyl is a yellow-to-green and brown depending on the impurities of iron or chromium present in the transparent to translucent crystal.
Alexandrite is one of the rare colour change crystals and is translucent
Cymophane (cat's eye) is fibrous and translucent. This is the only stone that can just be called cats eye, all other cats eye crystals must have the name of the crystal included such as cat's eye tourmaline or cat's eye quartz or even cat's eye selenite.
