The Rich Tapestry of Red Emerald History

The discovery of Red Emeralds is woven into the rugged landscapes of the Wah Wah Mountains in Utah. Unearthed in 1904 by Maynard Bixby, these gemstones were initially named 'bixbite.'

They later adopted the moniker Red Beryl, with Red Emerald being a preferred term due to their structural similarities with emeralds.

Red Emerald: A Gemstone Rarer Than Diamonds

When it comes to rarity, Red Emeralds are in a league of their own. The Utah Geological Survey estimates that for every 150,000 gem-quality diamonds, there is only one crystal of Red Emerald.

Their unique formation conditions make them so scarce that a 2-carat Red Emerald equates to the rarity of a 40-carat diamond!

Colors and Characteristics of Red Emerald Jewelry

Red emerald is in the beryl family of minerals. Other beryl minerals include emerald, aquamarine, and morganite. Beryl measures a 7.5 - 8 on the Moh’s Hardness scale. Any gemstones above a 7 on the scale are considered ideal for everyday wear pieces such as engagement and wedding rings.

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

Many red beryl specimens are not pure enough to be faceted but are instead shaped and polished as cabochons. As you shop our selection you'll notice pieces with faceted gemstones as well as cabochons. Both are beautiful in their own unique way.
