Beryl is a mineral composed of beryllium aluminium cyclosilicate with the chemical formula Be3Al2(Si O3)6. Well known varieties of beryl include aquamarine and emerald. Clear beryl is known as goshenite. Naturally occurring, hexagonal crystals of beryl can be up to several meters in size; terminated crystals are relatively rare.

Muscovite is a phyllosilicate mineral of aluminium and potassium. It has a highly perfect basal cleavage yielding remarkably thin laminae which are often highly elastic.
