History: The earliest reference to beryls was recorded in De Virtutibus Lapidum in the 2nd century BCE. It stated, “This stone is good…for damage to the eyes, and for all sickness if it is put in water and given as a drink.”
Pliny the Elder wrote of Aquamarine, “The most esteemed beryls are those which in colour resemble the pure green of the sea…which seems to have come from some mermaid’s treasure house, in the depths of the summer sea, its charm not to be denied.”
During the Roman era, Beryls were thought to have the energy of “young love” and were the traditional gift given to a bride by her groom the morning after their wedding. According Roman legend, “When blessed and worn it joins in love and does great things.” It was also believed that Aquamarine’s colour would change to reveal truth and lies, friends and foes, as well as the fidelity of a lover.
During the Middle Ages, Beryl was the most popular “oracle crystal”. Most commonly the Beryl would be hung from a string and used as a pendent.
Beryl has been the symbol of the apostle Thomas since the 10th century. The association was first determined by Andreas Bishop of Caesarea, one of the earliest writers to associate the apostles with the Foundation Stones of Revelation 20:1. He wrote: “The beryl, imitating the colours of the sea and or the air, and not unlike the jacinth, seems to suggest the admirable Thomas, especially as he made a long journey by seas, and even reached the Indies, sent by God to preach salvation to the peoples of the region.”
