Uhh… Let’s see, ZWS:
Be​~3~​Al​~2~​Si​~6~​O​~18~
Inserting escapes:
Be~3~Al~2~Si~6~O~18~
ZWNJ:
Be‌~3~‌Al‌~2~‌Si‌~6~‌O‌~18~

Hmm… None of these are working (in the preview):
Be~3~
It’s the word in front of the subscript sequence.

Unicode subscripts. This will work, if you have the fonts, but it may not look exactly right:
Be₃Al₂Si₆O₁₈

I dunno, that’s the best I could find through trial and error.

Looks fine from a Windows 7 x64 userland

Close, but somewhat misleading.

Emeralds are not exactly beryllium, molecular beryllium is an ugly lump of white-grey metal. Emerald is in fact a crystalline variety of the mineral beryl which is beryllium aluminium cyclosilicate, Be~3~Al~2~Si~6~O~18~ also gallagher help how the hell do I subscript without cramming spaces into everything srsly

Beryllium is cool for a variety of reasons.

1. It’s transparent(ish) to xrays. Used in xray crystallography.
2. It’s a neutron reflector and moderator. Used in nuclear weapons, and criticality experiments (e.g. the Demon Core).
3. Used in non-sparking beryllium-copper tools. Vital when working around things like hydrogen.
4. High speed of sound. That’s sqrt(β∕ρ).
5. When you factor in the weight, apparently Beryllium ceramics make fantastic body armor.
6. Beryllia (BeO) is an electrical insulator, yet a fantastic conductor of heat. Used to be used as heat spreaders and heat sinks.
7. Despite having zero neutron excess (important for light elements), 8​Be is fantastically unstable. Why? Because 4​He is even more stable!

I know that I forgot at least one thing about Beryllium that I know, but my point is thus:
Beryllium is awesome, too!

although it’s very toxic, which sucks.
