Quantcast

bixbite

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.
