"The Bixby" - Bixbite and Diamond Pendant in 18kt Yellow Gold


You have heard of emerald, aquamarine, morganite, maybe even heliodor, but have you heard of the most elusive type of beryl? Bixbite is the red variety of beryl, some even call it Red Emerald as it is a type 3 gemstone, meaning that it is common for the stone to be heavily included like green emeralds. Bixbite is an extremely rare mineral that is only found in one location in the world, the Western Utah Mountains. It was named after Maynard Bixby (1853-1935), an American mineralogist.

This bixbite necklace is dainty and lovely with the bixbite and diamond accent perfectly bezel set into this rich 18kt yellow gold mounting. The richness of the red beryl against the richness of the 18kt gold is sublime! This would make a perfect piece for every day as it would layer very well or stand proudly on its own as bixbite is a stone of courage, self-esteem, passion, love, and vitality.
