Ruby in Zoisite, which is also known as Anyolite, is a beautiful and unusual semi-precious stone. This mineral is a combination of stones with two very striking and contrasting colours. The olive green part of the stone is Zoisite, while the beautifully rich magenta red is the Ruby. Additionally there are often patches of the mineral Tschermakite which give the mineral black streaks. This mineral was first identified in the 1950’s in the Mundarara Mine in Tanzania. It gets the name ‘Anyolite’ from the Maasai word anyoli meaning green. Although originally discovered in Africa Ruby Zoisite is also found in India as well.

Metaphysically, Ruby in Zoisite is regarded as a lucky stone, as well as being a powerful healing stone. This is a stone that can help you stay positive and bring peace and happiness. Additionally it can help to increase self confidence and also help you achieve your goals in life. It is a powerful and spiritual gemstone that can boost positivity, and bring peace, happiness, and hope for the future.
