Pezzottaite is the very rare cesium analogue of beryl, first discovered in 2002. This sharp, gemmy and lustrous, vivid pink crystal has textbook tabular, hexagonal crystal form. These caused a lot of excitement when they came out and were at first, called raspberry beryl. A very highly desired and rare gem species. No more has been found since 2005 so far as I know.
