Where does Ruby Fuchsite come from?

Ruby Combinations can be found anywhere Rubies grow.  However most of the Ruby Combination stones on the market come from India, with the exception of Ruby Zoisite which is from Tanzania.

Mining and Treatments

Pure Ruby is often mined at a secondary deposit in the gravel beds of rivers.  But Ruby Combination stones are often mined at the primary location and removed directly from the bedrock.  The mines can be pits or tunnels, typically artisanal or small-scale.

The Rubies in Ruby Combination stones aren't gem-quality, so they have been left in their natural matrix.  They are completely natural, enhanced only by cutting and polishing.

Mineral Family

Ruby Combinations are not a single mineral, but rather a rock. As an easy way to understand the difference, think of rocks as being like cookies and minerals as being the ingredients which make up those cookies. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In the case of Ruby Combinations several minerals may be present.

  • Ruby Cordierite: grey/tan Cordierite (Iolite), red Corundum (Ruby)
  • Ruby Fuchsite: green Fuchsite, red Corundum (Ruby), may also have blue Kyanite, white Muscovite and/or Quartz
  • Ruby Kyanite: blue Kyanite and red Corundum (Ruby)
  • Ruby Zoisite: green Zoisite, red Corundum (Ruby), and black/dark green Pargasite.

Ruby Fuchsite Formation and Crystal Associates

Ruby Combination is a type of metamorphic rock created by regional metamorphism and hydrothermal alteration. Rubies as well as Cordierite, Fuchsite, Kyanite and Zoisite are all formed during the metamorphic process, and in rare cases may naturally fuse together into a single stone. Regional metamorphism occurs when there is a collision between tectonic plates, causing geological changes over a large area. Hydrothermal alteration happens when underground water is heated up to incredibly high temperatures. The hot water flows through minerals, leaving traces of other minerals in its wake, which can then grow in combination over time.

History of Ruby Fuchsite

Ruby always grows entwined with other minerals.  When the Ruby is a transparent gem, it is carefully cut away from the matrix and sold to the fine jewelry industry.  But sometimes the Ruby is opaque and the matrix is pretty, and so these stones are polished and carved for jewelry, talismans, and decorative purposes.  Ruby combination stones can be appreciated by anyone who loves beauty and the finer things.  But the largest market for these Ruby combination stones is the metaphysical industry which appreciates not only their coloring, but also their energy and affordable price point.

The first Ruby combination stones sold on the market were Ruby Zoisite from Tanzania and Ruby Kyanite from India.  Both had entered the market by the late 20th century and are mentioned in the modern lapidary classic,  Love is in the Earth (1995).  In 2002, Ruby Fuchsite from India joined them and also sold well.  It was a lighter green than the Zoisite and sometimes the Rubies were ringed by thin bands of Kyanite.  All three types are easily carved.
