STAA'l'Z ABSTRACT Beryllium deposits containing bertrandite (2Be2 Si04H?0) occur in tuffs on the fiats surrounding Spor Mountain in the western part of the Thomas Range in western Juab County, 46 miles northwest of Delta, Utah.

At Spor Mountain, deposits of fluorspar,beryllium, and uranium were formed during and after eruption ofthe Spor Mountain Formation. At Ma, extensive tuffs, flowsand domes of Miocene Topaz Mountain Rhyolite(SLIDES ) were erupted in the Thomas Range and the KegMountainarea (SLIDES ), located east of the Thomas Range.

InMaynard Bixby discovered red beryl in the Thomas Range located in Juab County, Utah. Bixby thought it might be a new variety of beryl, but the raspberry- red color did not correlate with any beryl known to exist at that time (green, blue, pink, yellow, and clear/white).

The beryllium deposits are submicroscopic, disseminated in the tuff and concentrated in fluorite nodules. The relationship of topaz-bearing rhyolite flows in the Thomas Range to mineralized tuff established that some or perhaps all of the beryllium and uranium mineralization are younger than 6 m.y.

Thomas Range rhyolite, recognized as a source of topaz for over a century (Ream, ; Wilson, ), is located adjacent to Spor Mountain, the world’s largest economic source of beryllium (Shawe, ; Christiansen et al., ; Barton and Young, ).

At that deposit, the ore consists of disseminated bertrandite—Be 4 Si 2 O 7 (OH) 2. BornNebraska. Graduated from Nehawka High School, University of Nebraska (BS in geology), Johns Hopkins University (PhD in geology).

Research geologist, USGS. Beryl (/ ˈ b ɛr əl / BERR-əl) is a mineral composed of beryllium aluminium cyclosilicate with the chemical formula Be 3 Al 2 Si 6 O Well-known varieties of beryl include emerald and lly occurring, hexagonal crystals of beryl can be up to several meters in size, but terminated crystals are relatively rare.

Pure beryl is colorless, but it is frequently tinted by Category: Cyclosilicate. It was first described in for an occurrence, its type locality, at Maynard’s Claim (Pismire Knolls), Thomas Range, Juab County, Utah. The old synonym “bixbite” is deprecated from the CIBJO, because of the risk of confusion with the mineral bixbyite (also named after the mineralogist Maynard Bixby).Many Friends may have collected superb cubic crystals of bixbyite in the Thomas Range, Juab County, Utah.

The type locality is Maynard’s mine, where Maynard Bixby collected the type specimens in Specimens from this and nearby localities grace mineral collections all over the world and are arguably the finest single crystals known.5/5(1).Topaz Mountain: Thomas Range, Juab County, Utah.

The Thomas Range is an area with some relatively rare and unique minerals. The rhyolite flows were rich in titanium and beryllium, allowing for the growth of topaz, red beryl (one of the only known locations in the world), bixbyite (another rarity), and pseudobrookite (1 of 11 known locations).
