Red Beryl is referred to by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., as "The Rarest Beryls of them all" !

These listed below are found in only one specific, famous, location on the entire planet: The Violet Claims Mine, Wah Wah Mountains, Beaver County, Utah.

I am quite happy to offer you with this new array of rare, and beautiful specimens listed below. Ranging in size from miniature to cabinet, each specimen is very unique, and of very high quality.

Each one displays very gemmy, perfectly terminated hexagonal crystals, with classic red "gooseberry" color. Offset by the snowy white Rhyolite matrix, the contrast is simply awesome! Any one of these rare beauties will make a great addition to your collection.

Red Beryl Crystals on Rhyolite Matrix

Rare, choice, multiple
Red Beryl crystals on Rhyolite matrix!

This is my largest specimen of the world famous Red Beryl that I am offering for sale, since selling Red Beryl specimen RB02 several years ago! It is a showy, and striking cabinet size specimen!

Featured are: one large respectably sized, and thick (1.3 cm. long x 0.7 cm. wide) Red Beryl crystal; seven smaller crystals, elegantly perched throughout the snowy Rhyolite matrix. Exhibiting great aesthetics, all the crystals display a very fine, and rich, red gooseberry/raspberry color!

The fact that the main larger crystal is perched in the center of the matrix, really sets it off beautifully. The cluster of the smaller group of Red Beryls shown in the lower left of the full specimen photo also includes a crystal up to 0.7 cm long. One of those displays an interesting attribute of a beveled edges on its termination.

Sharp, gemmy, and hexagonal terminations throughout -- with the opacity ranging from translucent to transparent! The base has been trimmed to display this beauty quite well. Overall, this is a very visually striking larger specimen for the species.

These days, you will not find many of these out there, as this locale has pretty much become defunct. I do not have to tell you how very rare these "RED EMERALDS" are becoming ...Especially of this fine quality!

This is a great opportunity for the discerning collector to add a very fine, and highly sought after, Red Beryls on Rhyolite to their own collection.

PLEASE NOTE: All of the photographs are not to scale. Some are enlarged to give you an accurate and an in depth view of all the details for you to see. Please always refer to specimen size in all my listings for the actual size, as this is what the final price is based on. Although picture colors can vary slightly from browsers to computers, I go to great lengths in photographing all mineral specimens with complete color accuracy, without any retouching whatsoever! My photo studio lighting consists of 4800K fluorescent lighting, which simulates the wavelengths of daylight. In some cases for a different effect I have utilized regular incandescent lighting to provide a different effect. If a specimen has knowingly been repaired, I will always disclose this information to you.
