Chrysoberyl, despite its name, is not related to Beryl, which is a silicate. Chrysoberyl is, in fact, an oxide. There are three types of Chrysoberyl: the golden, yellowish-green variety that is faceted into jewelry; the chatoyant variety known as Cat’s Eye or Cymophane (usually created into cabochons), and the most rare variety that changes color from green in ultraviolet light to red in artificial light known as Alexandrite.
The golden-yellow, often uncut Chrysoberyl is most widely used in healing. It is said to help one identify the nature of an illness and whether or not the healing should be conventional medical help or spiritual, or both. Chrysoberyl lets us strive to do our very best, often increasing our standards. It is often helpful for those who “follow the crowd” to stand apart and be their own person and find their own way.
Chrysoberyl is also a prosperity stone and luck-bringer.
Physically, use Chrysoberyl for intestinal disorders, celiac disease, and ulcers. It can also help with exhaustion, food allergies, eyesight (especially at night), and weight loss.
