Pure beryl is colorless, however, inclusions within the mineral cause beryl to form in a variety of colors. Heliodor belongs to the same mineral family as Aquamarine, Emerald, Morganite and Red Beryl (Bixbite). The beautiful sunny, yellow color of Heliodor is usually caused by small amounts of iron within the mineral's crystal structure.
