Twenty-four million years ago, pressure deep within the earth pushed up the Wah Wah Mountain Range in Utah. When the volcanic forces subsided, a small cache of red emeralds was left behind. The gemstones, also known as red beryl or bixbite, are only found in this mountain range in Utah, perhaps the rarest of all precious gems.
Red emeralds are so rare that in the 50 years since their discovery by Utah uranium prospector, Lamar Hodges, less than 60,000 carats have been cut or faceted into gemstones. Only one red emerald is found for every 150,000 diamonds. Cut stones can bring more than 1,000 times their weight in gold.
