An Exceptional “Red Emerald ” "One of the finest Bixbite ever unearthed, also known as Red Emerald. " In 1900’s, Maynard Bixby discovered a new type of crystal “Red Beryl” in the Violet Topaz Mine, located in the Wah Wah area in Utah, a state in the western United States. Like emerald, Bixbite is a beryl, and inclusions are commonplace. A gem over a carat or more with inclusion free is extremely rare as their crystals were usually less than two carats, which left very small gems after faceting. In 2006, the Jewelers Association named Bixbite as the rarest gemstone on earth. This extraordinary untreated 1.41-carat Bixbite was acquired from a miner at the Wah Wah Mountains before the mine is closed. This was the miner’s prized possession due to the vibrant fine red colour and clarity as he had never seen in this size. This bixbite displays perfect crystallization, which is uncommon for any of such over one-carat size, making this piece one of the finest in circulation and ever to be available at auction.
