Good Afternoon Berkshire Weekenders,
With May just around the corner and the sun shining bright here in Omaha, we thought it would be fun to show off a little bit of what you can expect when you come to visit for the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s Weekend.
We are currently featuring an extraordinarily beautiful, 4.27 ct bixbite bracelet. This piece showcases red emeralds from Utah and blue sapphires from Montana. It comes from the Gubelin Collection.
Bixbite is a member of the beryl gem stone family and it includes some gem-fan favorites. You may know these gems as blue/green aquamarine, pink morganite, yellow/orange heliodor, green emerald and colorless goshenite. It has also been called red emerald, scarlet emerald and red beryl. The red color of bixbite is derived from manganese. The color of bixbite gem stones varies from orange/red to red to purple/red. The most desirable color is a deep, clear pink. Many people want and hunt for bixbite gems over one carat in size, but these sizes are very rare. The largest faceted bixbite gem stone is less than three carats, making gem-quality bixbite extremely rare and expensive.
Bixbite has been said to have the power to overcome grief and depression, to help a person feel more energetic and creative, and to stimulate one’s awareness. It has also been said to aid in relationships, giving compatibility and harmony. If you have health issues with your digestive system, heart, or lungs, the bixbite gem stone might be Â beneficial to you. It has been suggested that bixbite helps heal those affected areas of the body.
If you are interested, we hope that you will check it out and more amazing jewelry available at Borsheims.
See you in May,
Bill, the blogger
