If you picture-google chrysoberyl, you’ll see it has quite a wide variety of appearance, from transparent golden gemstone, to greenish cat’s-eye, to a garnet-like red. The less expensive variety, though not exactly gemmy, is a very pretty blue. This mineral was only identified a couple hundred years ago. But because the form of chrysoberyl known as Alexandrite has the amazing property of changing color in different lighting, it has already developed quite a reputation. Soon after its discovery, magician Eliphas Levy recommended it for strengthening blood vessels, and other blood-related healing purposes. Chrysoberyl has a strong association with the planet Mercury, connecting it to shapeshifting and bringing messages.
