History

Red emerald was discovered in the Wah Wah Mountains of Utah in 1904. Since the discovery it has been found in other parts of the world, but Utah is still the only location where gem-quality stones are found.

Red emerald is so rare, in fact, that the Utah Geological Survey estimates that for every 150,000 gem-quality diamonds that are found only one crystal of red emerald is found. Wow!

Characteristics

Red emerald is a type of beryl making it closely related to emerald and aquamarine. It measures a 7.5 - 8 on the Moh’s Hardness scale so it’s an ideal gemstone for everyday wear pieces in all settings. 

In color, red emerald features hues from raspberry pink to purplish pink. The color is often rich and saturated which helps give it its beauty.
