Ruby-zoisite is the natural combination of both ruby and zoisite crystals in a single specimen. It is also known as ‘anyolite’, a name derived from the Masai word for ‘green’ (anyoli). Zoisite provides an earthy green color, while ruby inclusions give it pink and red highlights.
Ruby in Zoisite offers the energy of happiness, appreciation, abundance, vitality and growth. It stimulates the heart and helps one to open to divine love. Zoisite helps to alleviate grief, anger, despair and defeat, and it is a powerful stone for deep healing by activating the body’s defenses and healing mechanisms.
A ruby is a pink to blood-red colored gemstone, a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminium oxide). Other varieties of gem-quality corundum are called sapphires. Ruby is one of the traditional cardinal gems, together with amethyst, sapphire, emerald, and diamond. The word ruby comes from ruber, Latin for red.
