This heliodor from Nigeria has a nice slightly greenish-golden color and really does look better than the photos. A few small inclusions in the stone really don’t detract significantly.

Because of the stone’s unusually vibrant yellow color, it was given the name heliodor, from the Greek words helios and doron, meaning, gift from the sun.

Heliodor crystals in some pegmatites grow to extremely large sizes, sometimes even up to 30 feet.
