Occasionally used to describe the rare form of Red Beryl
from Utah. Its name was in honor of mineralogist
Maynard Bixby (1853 – 1935), a well known explorer of the Thomas Range in Utah. The name Bixbite is no longer suggested and accepted, due to confusion of the term with the mineral Bixbyite
, which is an entirely different mineral named after Maynard Bixby.
