RED BERYL WAS ALSO KNOWN AS BIXBITE OR RED EMERALD,ITS IS EXTREMELY RARE HARDNESS 7.5 ,CHEMICAL COMPOSITION IS Be3Al2Si6O18. RED BERYL IS FOUND IN ONLY 3 LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD( Thomas Range and the Wah Wah Mountains in west-central Utah, and the Black Range in New Mexico)

Red beryl formation began with the eruption of a topaz rhyolite lava from volcanic vents. As the lava began to cool, shrinkage cracks formed, creating pathways for hightemperature gases rich in beryllium to escape. Oxidized surface water also began seeping into these cracks and mixed with the rising beryllium gases. The gases reacted with the surface water, silica, alkali feldspar, and ironmanganese oxides from the lava to form red beryl crystals.Red beryl probably grew at temperatures between 300 to 650 degrees Celsius

The only known deposit of large, gem-quality red beryl in the world is from the Ruby-Violet claims in the Wah Wah Mountains of Beaver County, Utah. These are private claims and no collecting is allowed without permission from the present claim owners.
