Description: These Heliodor facets come in various traditional shapes.
Heliodor is a gemstone variety of the mineral beryl, which also includes other well-known gemstones like emerald and aquamarine. It is known for its yellow to greenish-yellow color, which is caused by the presence of iron impurities in the crystal structure.
The name "heliodor" comes from the Greek words for "gift of the sun," reflecting its sunny, warm color. Heliodor is a popular gemstone for use in jewelry due to its attractive color and relative hardness (7.5-8 on the Mohs scale).
In addition to its decorative uses, heliodor is also believed by some to have healing properties. It is said to promote mental clarity and wisdom, and to help release negative energy and emotions.
