Ruby Zoisite Pendant
Ruby Zoisite Pendant Jewellery on Sale
An impressive ruby zoisite pendant featuring a deep red coloured cabochon mounted in a hand-crafted sterling silver setting.
Ruby zoisite also known as ruby in zoisite is a combination of the minerals corundum and zoisite. Red corundum is ruby whilst all other colour are known simply as sapphire. Mined predominantly in Tanzania, ruby zoisite is a popular lapidary material which takes on an exceptional polish but because of the difference in hardness of the two minerals, it can be a challenging stone to work with.
This carefully chosen cabochon makes a stunning piece of ladies jewellery which we have reluctantly included in our collection of jewellery on sale because there are some very minor polishing issues on the surface of the stone. It's important to note this only becomes visible with careful inspection when the stone is angled towards the light and absolutely does not spoil the magnificence of this natural stone.
When choosing cabochon gemstones for our collection we tend to be guided by colour and natural characteristics more than perfection and knew immediately that this ruby zoisite gemstone would make a fabulous piece of jewellery. Mounted in timeless sterling silver, this slightly chunkier pendant comes in a colourful gift pouch that will help protect the stone and minimise any build-up of tarnish on the sterling silver.
