An ornamental material consisting of crystalline aggregates of green zoisite with non transparent ruby inclusions it is found in Tanzania and the general appearance is unmistakable. There isn't another stone like it in the mineral world. The green zoisite is relatively soft, between 5.5 - 6.5 while the ruby inclusions are usually quite hard, 9 on the Mohs scale. This can make the stone difficult to cut because of the differences in hardness and usually diamond tools will be used. Zoisite has been known for nearly two centuries as an ornamental stone. The medium grade red ruby material is usually spread irregularly throughout the green zoisite. It is one of the most colorful of ornamental stones. Zoisite crystallises in the form of masses and striated prismatic crystals. Its colour can range from colourless, white, pink (thulite), to blue, purple (tanzanite), yellow brown green and red. It is a member of the epidote group of minerals, although it belongs to the orthorhombic as opposed to the monoclinic crystal system. This mineral rids us of negative energy and converts it to a positive forcefield. It can also rid us of laziness and idleness (any one with teenage children will appreciate that)! It also facilitates advancement in all the areas of one's life. It has been used to treat disorders of the heart, lungs spleen and pancreas. The masses of Zoisite that contain ruby (depicted in the photographs below) is also known as anyolite. The combination is very powerful giving both properties of Anyolite and ruby as well as Zoisite. It is excellent for encouraging us to reach and use our full talents and potential. It can stimulate psychic abilities.
