If I am not mistaken red beryl or red emerald is actually sometimes
can come as a clear crystals none as Bixbite which is actually from
Rhodochrosite. if you have clear facetable sampled they can bring up
to $1,000+ per carat depending on the quality.

“If I am not mistaken red beryl or red emerald is actually sometimes

Red Beryl is Bixbite, and yes, it is relatively rare. As far as I
know, it is found only at the Wah Wah Mountains in the state of Utah.
However, finding faceted Red Beryl is fairly easy.

But, calling Red Beryl a Red Emerald is like calling a “red apple” a
red “green apple”. It just doesn’t make sense. Emerald is the green
variety of Beryl. The name Emerald itself means green for the name
Emerald comes from the Greek word “smaragdos” meaning green stone.

Red Beryl also is not from Rhodochrosite. Beryl is Beryllium
Aluminum Silicate. Rhodochrosite is Manganese Carbonate.

Bixbite (not to be confused with Bixbyite) is another name for red
beryl (called red emerald for commercial purposes). Bixbite/red beryl
has absolutely nothing to do chemically with rhodochrosite, which is
not a beryl, not even close.

Red beryl (trade name red emerald) is beryl not rhodocrosite. If it
isn’t beryl than it cannot be called red beryl.
