FALL BEGINS: The Autumnal Equinox occurs on Monday at 9:29 PM CDT. That means fall officially arrives, it also means that we have equal daylight to darkness that day. After that, we begin to see more darkness as the amount of daytime hours continues to decrease all the way until the winter solstice, which is just before Christmas.

 BERYL, BERYL, BERYL, BERYL, BERYL

In geology, beryl is a mineral composed of beryllium aluminium cyclosilicate with the chemical formula Be3Al2(SiO3)6. The hexagonal crystals of beryl may be very small or range to several meters in size. Terminated crystals are relatively rare. Pure beryl is colorless, but it is frequently tinted by impurities; possible colors are green, blue, yellow, red, and white.
