Ordinary chrysoberyl is yellowish-green and transparent to translucent.
The three main varieties of chrysoberyl are:
Yellow-green chrysoberyl was referred to as "chrysolite" during the Victorian and Edwardian eras, which caused confusion since that name has also been used for the mineral olivine/peridot, that name is no longer used.
Chrysoberyl is the stone of new beginnings. It brings compassion and forgiveness, generosity and confidence into your life. It aligns the Solar Plexus and Crown Chakras. It blends the mind and spirit together and opens the Crown Chakra which then increases both your spiritual and personal power.
Chrysoberyl strengthens feelings of self worth and releases useless energy patterns. It will help you see both sides of a problem and help you analyse and come to a decision on the correct path. It encourages forgiveness for past sins that have been done to you or by you.
If chrysoberyl is used with other crystals it will highlight the cause of a disease. It supports self healing, balances the adrenals and cholesterol. It fortifies the chest and liver.

Chatoyancy is an optical reflectance effect seen in certain gemstones. Chatoyancy arises either from the fibrous structure of a material, as in tiger's eye quartz, or from fibrous inclusions (rutile) or cavities within the stone, as in cat's eye chrysoberyl. The rutile are all aligned perpendicularly with respect to cat's eye effect. The effect can be likened to the sheen of a spool of silk. The term Cat's Eye, when used by itself as the name of a gemstone, refers to a Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl. It is also used as an adjective which indicates the chatoyance phenomenon in another stone, e.g., Cat's Eye Aquamarine.
