WHAT IS RUBY ZOISITE:

Ruby zoisite is a colourful metamorphic rock that features crystals of red corundum and green zoisite.
It's not unusual for hornblende to also be present.

Due to its striking colour stones are widely used for decorative purposes.
The difference in hardness of the minerals corundum and zoisite can make working with the stone quite difficult.
On Mohs scale of mineral hardness zoisite grades 6.5 whilst corundum grades 9.

Ruby zoisite is quite a rare stone. 
The vast majority comes from northern Tanzania. 
The name Anyolite is also sometimes used which comes from the Maasai word 'anyoli
' meaning 'green'. 
The Maasai prefer to call it Ruby 
in Zoisite as an expression of pride that precious ruby can be found on their land.
