From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Beryl \Ber"yl\ (b[ecr]r"[icr]l), n. [F. b[82]ryl, OF. beril, L.
      beryllus, Gr. bh`ryllos, prob. fr. Skr. vai[dsdot][umac]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.
