Heliodor is the golden yellow stone that was first discovered in 1910 at Rossing, Erongo, Western Namibia. It is a variety of beryl, and is actually the most brilliant one of all the beryls. Because of its unusually vibrant yellow color, it was given the name heliodor. The Greek words helios and doron, meaning, gift from the sun. Heliodor in fact, has always been linked with the sun. What makes heliodor different than other yellow colors of beryl, is that it gets its vibrant golden color from trace of iron.
