Bixbite is the red variety of Beryl, and is classified in the same family as Emerald. This very rare gemstone was mined only at the Wah Wah Mountains deposit in Utah and this deposit is finished for now. The last operators had to totally restore the site when they passed on their option. Anyone wishing to go back and re-open the mine will spend millions just removing the overburden. There may still be red beryl in the ground but it hasn't proven to be economical to pull it out. The largest stones in the world are less than 3cts. in weight and there is zero new production. A fine top color bixbite, even a slightly included one could fetch prices exceeding even the best 1ct. sized diamonds.
