Ruby Fuchsite is a wonderful combination of playful red Ruby and sensible green Fuchsite. In some cases, the Rubies have a thin ring of blue Kyanite and white Snow Quartz may be intertwined with the Fuchsite.  It is relatively new healing stone, only introduced to the market in the 2002.  It was immediately popular with the metaphysical community for its contrasting colors and endearing energy.  Ruby Fuchsite is an ideal stone for anyone who wants greater connections in love and friendship.  It helps us to be our true self, rather than trying to project a perfection version of ourselves that we think is more loveable.  It reminds us that we are good just the way we are.

Where does Ruby Fuchsite come from?

Ruby combination stones can be found anywhere Rubies grow.  Ruby Fuchsite has been found in Brazil, Myanmar, Nepal, Norway, South Africa and Vietnam  However, almost all the stones on the market comes from India.

Mining and Treatments

Pure Ruby is often mined at a secondary deposit in the gravel beds of rivers.  By contrast, Ruby combination stones are typically 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 these 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!  For this stone, the two main minerals are obviously Fuchsite and Ruby, but sometimes there are also rings of blue Kyanite around the Rubies or white Snow Quartz will be blended in with the Fuchsite

Ruby Fuchsite’s energy works well with its family – other Ruby Combination minerals.  Try it in combination with Ruby Iolite, Ruby Kyanite, and Ruby Zoisite.

Ruby Fuchsite Formation and Crystal Associates

Ruby combinations are metamorphic rocks created by regional metamorphism and hydrothermal alteration. Rubies and Fuchsite, as well as other minerals like Kyanite, are formed during the metamorphic process, and in rare cases may naturally fuse together into a single stone.  If the rock includes Snow Quartz, this mineral would have existed in a previous igneous rock and been warped and folded in with other new and existing minerals during the metamorphic process.  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.

Ruby Fuchsite’s energy works well with its “friends” – crystal associates formed in the same geological environment.  Try it in combination with Kyanite and Rutilated Quartz.

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.  But the Rubies tend to be better formed in the Fuchsite and Zoisite, which allows for more interesting carvings.  The best carvings use the various minerals to guide the design, such as in the case of this lovely flower pendent.
