Beryllium's atomic number is 4 and its symbol is Be. Beryllium is a lightweight and brittle metal that can be extracted from naturally occurring minerals and gemstones. Gemstones that contain beryllium include aquamarine, emerald, and chrysoberyl. Because of its high conductivity and low weight, it is a favorable material in the production of spacecraft. If inhaled beryllium dust can cause a chronic life-threatening illness known as Chronic Beryllium Disease. This makes it a very difficult metal to machine and process safely. Beryllium is also used to make non-sparking and non-magnetic tools, high-end speakers, and lightweight mirrors for satellites.
