beryl at English => English (English Etymology) Of Explained:

"hard, lustrous mineral," c.1305, from O.Fr. beryl, from L. beryllus, from Gk. beryllos, from Prakrit veruliya, from Skt. vaidurya-, of Dravidian origin, perhaps from the city of Velur (modern Belur) in southern India. M.L. berillus was applied also to crystal and to eyeglasses (the first spectacle lenses may have been made of beryl), hence Ger. Brille "spectacles," from M.H.G. berille "beryl," and Fr. besicles (pl.) "spectacles," altered from O.Fr. bericle. ///

beryl at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Mineral composed of beryllium aluminum silicate, Be3Al2(SiO3)6, a commercial source of beryllium. Several varieties are valued as gemstones: aquamarine (pale blue-green); emerald (deep green); heliodor (golden yellow); and morganite (pink). Before 1925 beryl was used only as a gemstone, but since then many important uses have been found for beryllium (e.g., in nuclear reactors, space vehicles, and X-ray tubes). No large deposits have been found, and most production is a by-product of the mining of feldspar and mica. Brazil is a major producer; others include Zimbabwe, S. Africa, Namibia, and the U.S.

Beryl at English => English (Websters 1913) Of Explained:

Beryl \Ber"yl\ (b[e^]r"[i^]l), n. [F. b['e]ryl, OF. beril, L.
beryllus, Gr. bh`ryllos, prob. fr. Skr. vai[dsdot][=u]rya.
Cf. {Brilliant}.] (Min.)
A mineral of great hardness, and, when transparent, of much
beauty. It occurs in hexagonal prisms, commonly of a green or
bluish green color, but also yellow, pink, and white. It is a
silicate of aluminium and glucinum (beryllium). The
{aquamarine} is a transparent, sea-green variety used as a
gem. The {emerald} is another variety highly prized in
jewelry, and distinguished by its deep color, which is
probably due to the presence of a little oxide of chromium.
