Gemology

Ruby Zoisite in real life

  • Ruby-zoisite is the natural combination of both ruby and zoisite crystals in a single specimen.
  • It is also known as "anyolite"
    • This name is derived from the Masai word for green (anyoli)
  • Other name variations include "ruby-in-zoisite" and "Tanganyika artstone".
  • Ruby-zoisite was discovered at the Longido mining district in northeast Tanzania by Tom Blevins, an English prospector.
    • To this day, Tanzania remains the only source for ruby-zoisite.
  • Depending on its primary constituents, ruby-in-zoisite can vary tremendously in color, pattern and hardness. Zoisite provides an earthy green color, while ruby inclusions give it pink and red highlights.
