The Rarest Gemstone On Earth: Bixbite
If you hear Bixbite called red emerald, it is not an emerald, but a marketing strategy. Bixbite is a member of the Beryl family and is extremely rare and almost impossible to find in larger sizes and good clarity. It is a type 3 gemstone and normally very heavily included just as an emerald is. I would love to own a Bixbite.
