This cabochon of Ruby in Zoisite has very little of the "ruby color", it's mostly shades of green.Ruby in Zoisite is the natural combination of both ruby and zoisite crystals in a single specimen. Ruby in zoisite was discovered at the Longido mining district in northeast Tanzania. 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. Although ruby in zoisite is not fine ruby, it eventually found a purpose in carvings and cabochons. Today, it is one of the most colorful ornamental gemstones available, and the abundance of gemstone material makes it very affordable even in larger sizes.
