Discovered in the late 1970's and still found in gem quality at only one site in the world, the Wah-Wah Mountains of Utah, red beryl, or bixbite, is one of the world's rarest and most desirable gemstones. Typically as included as its fellow beryl, emerald, few crystals approach gem quality. Most specimens of fine crystals are zealously guarded by mineral collectors.

This gemstone has several different names: red beryl, red emerald, or bixbite. Originally, the gem was named bixbite, but now red beryl is the most accepted designation. Red beryl is estimated to be worth 1,000 times more than gold and is so rare that one red beryl crystal is found for every 150,000 diamonds.

In 1904, Maynard Bixby discovered red beryl in Utah. Bixby thought it might be a new variety of beryl, but the raspberry- red color did not correlate with any beryl known to exist at that time. W.F. Hillebrand, a geochemist from the National College in Washington, D.C., identified the mineral
as a new type of beryl in 1905.
