Ruby Iolite
Energy Vibrations

Ruby Iolite has an extremely well-balanced energy. It can be hot and intense, inspiring courage and passion. It can also be cool and calm, encouraging meditation and intuitive practices.

Ethically Sourced

Ruby Iolite from India

This lapidary hand-polishes stones in Mumbai, India. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers are paid fairly. The Lapidary is also an exporter that sells at gem shows in the United States and Japan.

I first met this source at the 2014 Tucson Gem Show. It was my first buying trip for my own store and I was nervous. Most lapidary owners were brisk and impatient with my questions, especially when I asked about the mines and the supply chains. But one man stood out to me as particularly patient and kind. He had been a wholeseller for over twenty years, yet he was happy to meet someone brand-new to the industry.

He took time to talk to me about the stones. They came from his home country of India and he was able to tell me exactly which state or territory each one came from and some of the conditions at the individual mines. When I told him that I wanted to source ethically, he said that it would be difficult, but that it was a worthwhile challenge. He made me feel like I could succeed, both at ethical sourcing and at being a business owner. I looked forward to a long business relationship with him. Sadly, he died suddenly in 2016.

I stayed in touch with his family and in 2017 met his wife, teenage daughter, and his father. This three-generation family has picked up the pieces and learned how to run the business. His wife had never worked before, but she gracefully stepped into her new role as a business owner. Her father-in-law offers practical and moral support, but makes sure that everyone knows that SHE is the boss and that checks should be written directly to her. The family continues to be supportive of my efforts to ethically source. More than any other lapidary, they are willing to speak openly with me about the difficult parts of the industry. They have invited me to visit them in India, to visit the mines and their lapidary. The daughter is now a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) Graduate and is interested in reiki and other healing modalities. As she has grown up, she has become increasingly concerned about ethical issues.

This Ruby Iolite comes from artisanal miners near Odisha, India.  It was mined on land at its primary location, it may be pit mining or tunnels.

Ruby Iolite Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published September 2016  •  Updated February 2024  •  Read Time: 7 minutes
Ruby Iolite is a unique blend of pink rubies on a gray or tan matrix of Cordierite that is found in India.  Cordierite is the scientific name for a mineral that comes in variety of colors, the most desirable being a dark blue gem called Iolite.  The name Iolite is widely used in the jewelry and metaphysical industry, while Cordierite is usually reserved for scientists or collectors.  Energetically, this gem combines the joyful passion of Ruby with the quiet wisdom of Iolite.  Together they encourage us to be more thoughtful towards our loved ones and to consider what is necessary to make everyone happy and successful in life.

    Pretty stone and decent size.

    My items shipped very fast. I love the shape and feel of my stone. The colors are fun throughout it. Definitely little spots of a pretty purple iolite. Which the darker spot on the rock in the photo is iolite. I used my UV flashlight to highlight the gorgeous ruby! I follow my own path through life and find that crystals have always enhanced every aspect of it. I feel this ruby and iolite definitely gives off beautiful vibes of the mystery and gives strength and energy to the curious on ones journey. Stunning, I will be purchasing from this seller again in the near future. Check out her website! Thank You!

    I love the Ruby Iolite (Corundum and Cordierite) Julie chose for me. The contrast of the red Ruby and blue Iolite, as well as the patterns, are beautiful. These are both among my favorite stones, and the blended energy of these crystal is wonderful. I have purchased many, many crystals from Moonrise Crystals, and Julie always put so much care into each package. Thank you.

    This ruby iolite…tears came to my eyes when I first held it, just because rubies tend to invite you to feel so damn much, but also I love that you chose one with large lines running through it, and one that’s especially deep. My first thought was to be reminded of all of my own “cracks” which weigh heavily on me lately; but the more I looked at it, the more they felt like lines of experience, and new pathways of possibility. I find it deeply beautiful.

    My Ruby Iolite is beautiful to look at and wonderful to hold in my hand. It has a very peaceful feel to it, and I hope it will really be able to help me stay focused on some physical goals (health and diet) while also providing comfort and inspiration.

    The Ruby Iolite has a reassuring, supportive solidness to its feel and is fun to let my eyes rest on when I look up from work. Its combination of warm energy and cool wisdom have already been a sweet companion through an intense day of work, and I look forward to working with it for many days to come.
