Note: Pezzottaite , also marketed under the name “raspberry beryl” and “red emerald”, is a newly discovered mineral first identified in 2003. Typically only found in stones under 1 carat in size and almost unheard of in stones over 2 carats, pezzottaite is found in shades from pink to strong red and often contain extensive inclusions. Red emerald is also used as a name for the similar mineral bixbite, but pezzottaite crystallizes in a different form than other varieties of beryl, which has led to it being given its own unique name.
