Heliodor was first discovered in 1912 by E. Kaiser in the African country of Namibia. This pure yellow beryl deposit was designated Heliodor (after the Greek words “Helios”, meaning “sun” and “Doron”, meaning “gift”), with it being the only vein in Heliodor, also known as Golden Beryl, is a very rare variety of Beryl that crystallizes in the form of elongated rods (with natural etching) and smaller mass formations (but large enough for carving and sculpting). The bright golden color Heliodor is known for comes from inclusions of Iron within. These same inclusions, depending on amount and density, can also give Heliodor a yellow-greenish tint (These are deemed “lower quality” in some collectors eyes, but we believe the energies are exactly the same and just as powerful). Heliodor was first discovered in 1912 by E. Kaiser in the African country of Namibia. This pure yellow beryl deposit was designated Heliodor (after the Greek words “Helios”, meaning “sun” and “Doron”, meaning “gift”), with it being the only vein in existence. Since that time the name has been gradually absorbed and refers to all of the world’s yellow beryls (although that is still a hotly debated subject amongst geologists). Important Heliodor localities are thin and spread throughout the entire world, with major deposits in Ukraine, Sri Lanka, Namibia, Brazil, Finland, Russia, and Madagascar.
There are a lot of strange and beautiful creations in nature and one of our favorites are Aquamarine crystals that have a thin top layer of bright yellow Heliodor! If you're ever given the chance to purchase one we highly recommend it, as it shows the true beauty of Mother Nature and the diverse capabilities of Iron (which causes the colors).
