    SUITE OF BERYL GEMSTONES
    1. Aqua, Nigeria; 2. Heliodor, Brazil; 3. Chrome Beryl, Nigeria; 4. Morganite, Mozambique
    This four gem suite is eminently suitable for inclusion in a comparative collection of the various types and localities of Beryl. It features examples of several of the major color varieties of this mineral: Aquamarine, Heliodor, Chrome Beryl and Morganite. The Aquamarine from Nigeria is cut in a trillion style and shows good depth of color in a stone of this size. Clean and well proportioned, it measures 9.3 x 9.5 x 9.2 mm and weighs 2.30 cts. The second gemstone of the suite is a golden Heliodor from Brazil. It was cut in a square scissors style and is eye clean. The measurements of this golden jewel are 12.0 x 10.1 mm and the weight is 5.08 cts. The third in the series is an eye clean Chrome Beryl from Nigeria. This material is quite rare for Beryl. High levels of Chromium in Beryl are responsible for the gem we call Emerald. In this instance the lower Chromium levels and appearance are such that the material doesn't quite qualify as Emerald but with some Vanadium and low Iron it can't be considered Aquamarine either, hence the default use of chemical nomenclature in the name. This attractive blue-green emerald cut gemstone measures 9.1 x 7.1 mm and weighs 2.21 cts. The fourth member of the suite is a Morganite, the pink color variety in Beryl. It was mined in the former Portuguese colony of Mozambique. The cut style is a simple, oval brilliant with excellent proportions and scintillation. It measures 11.5 x 8.2 mm and weighs 2.74 cts.
