Shop Ruby Zoisite
Ruby zoisite is a relatively rare type of stone from Northern Tanzania.
It's believed to have formed during the geological time period known as the Neoproterozoic era.
Due to the difference in hardness of the minerals zoisite and corundum it's not easy to cut.

"Anyolite" comes from the Maasai word for "green" The Maasai work some of the smaller mines in the Arusha region.
