Red Beryl (also known as "Red Emerald") is a red variety of beryl. It was first discovered in 1904 at Maynard's claim (Pismire Knolls), Thomas Range, Juab County, Utah. Bixbite is a synonym for red beryl. Red Beryl is extremely rare and has only been reported from a handful of locations including: Paramount Canyon and Round Mountain, Sierra County, New Mexico, Juab County in Utah and Wah Wah Mountains, Beaver County, Utah. The greatest concentration of gem-grade red beryl comes from the Violet Claim in the Wah Wah Mountains of mid-western Utah, discovered in 1958 by Lamar Hodges, of Fillmore, Utah, while he was prospecting for uranium. Prices for top quality natural red beryl can be as high as $10,000 per carat for faceted stones. Red beryl has been known to be confused with pezzottaite, also known as raspberry beryl or "raspberyl", a gemstone that has been found in Madagascar and now Afghanistan – although cut gems of the two varieties can be distinguished from their difference in refractive index.
NOTE: Any gemstone with the suffix "A" following the stock number is a custom cut gem still in the posession of the gem cutter and will require 2-3 days extra time to ship.
