Rare Red Beryl (also sometimes called Bixbite) on Topaz Crystal – Location: Thomas Range, Juab Co., Utah. Large Thumbnail (see photo for more details). Here we have a rare and attractive tabular red beryl crystal on a cluster of topaz crystals from our red beryl claims in the Thomas Range in Utah (owned and operated by us (topazminer)! This is a specimen of the tabular variety of red beryl. The beryl crystal is well-formed and sharp and has a raspberry red color. The beryl has a good raspberry red color and the crystal has some quartz inclusions. The beryl crystal is perched on a cluster of topaz crystals. The topaz crystals are sharply formed; however, the crystals have numerous quartz inclusions giving the crystal a grayish opaque appearance; these topaz crystals with quartz inclusions are sometimes referred to as ‘sand’ topaz crystals. This specimen is from the John Holfert collection.
