The mineral discovered was initially assumed to belong to sapphires, but later on, George Louderbak, a mineralogist, examined the discovery using X-rays and concluded that benitoite is a unique gem, different from sapphire by its composition. The conclusion allowed considering benitoite an independent mineral.
