Product Description

Wah Wah Mountains Bixbite Minimum .15ct Mm Varies Pear Shape. Mined In Utah And Cut In The United States.

Bixbite, also known as red emerald or red beryl, is not only the rarest variety in the beryl family, but also one of the rarest gems on the planet. When you think of beryl, there are many varieties, including emerald, aquamarine, morganite, goshenite, heliodor, green beryl, golden beryl and bixbite. While many of these beryl varieties are well known, the same cannot be said about bixbite. One of the most collectible and highly desirable of all gemstones, bixbite was first discovered in the Thomas Range of Utah in 1904. A subsequent discovery in Utah's Wah Wah Mountains in 1958 uncovered the first (and to date, only) source of gem-quality crystals. If you are a searching for a true American beauty, look no further than bixbite, the American red beryl from Utah.

Review This Product
WHAT A ROCK!!!This bixbite is just as I expected it to be. The luster is great and the color is raspberry red. The stone has less inclusions than the one in the picture and has small black inclusions under a 10x loupe, probably carbon as in rubies. The cut is good and the stone looks larger than 15 points due to the elongated cut (pear). The table is symmetrical. It is worth the money to have such a rare gem! February 25, 2014
