Heliodor is a sunshiny yellow-to-orange hued beryl whose name literally translates to “gift from the sun” in Greek. While we do see heliodor from East Africa, it’s much less common than aquamarine, making these gem-quality stones a rare gift indeed. This stone would make a great choice for anyone looking for a stone that evokes sunlight, positivity, and warmth.

At least 10% of your purchase will directly benefit education, vocational training, community development and other initiatives supporting miners where they need it most through the nonprofit Gem Legacy.
