Emotional Healing Properties

Ruby Kyanite It is a stone of courage, clarity, and joyful passion.  It helps us to understand and communicate our own emotional needs and reactions.  It gently reminds us that there are many ways to look at a situation – and some of those perspectives are wildly off base!  This gem helps us to determine which is the most correct perspective – which is usually the one that leaves us feeling empowered, calm and compassionate.   If we find ourselves feeling victimized or misunderstood, or if negative situations keep repeating, Ruby Kyanite helps us to take a step back and examine the situation more closely.  Are we expressing our thoughts and needs clearly?  Are we understanding other people accurately?  Is everyone responding in a way that makes sense?  If not, where is the disconnect between beliefs, words and actions?  Ruby Kyanite reminds us that sometimes what we want to be true, isn’t actually true.  It can help us to see through our own misconceptions as well as through other people’s gaslighting.  It teaches us that truth will always set us free and that honesty is always the best policy.

It is particularly helpful when we need to create efficient systems – whether at work, at home, or in our deepest inner life. It helps us to calm our minds and think objectively, without letting our emotions distract us.  At the same time, it encourages us to notice what makes us feel happy and what leaves us feeling dissatisfied.  It reminds us that we don’t need to needlessly suffer just because we think we “should” do something or act a certain way.  We are not robots or unfeeling souls.  We are dynamic beings that have emotional and spiritual needs which deserve to be met.  This can happen when we organize our life in such a way that there is plenty of room for self-care and a pleasant balance of joy and peace.

Physical Healing Properties

Where does Ruby Kyanite come from?

Ruby combination stones can be found anywhere Rubies grow.  Ruby Kyanite has been found in the Czech Republic, Greece, Norway, Russia and Tanzania.  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.

Do healing crystals speak to you?

At Moonrise Crystals our healing stones sing songs of peace and freedom.  That’s because they are truly ethically-sourced.  And that matters.

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!

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

Ruby Kyanite Formation and Crystal Associates

Ruby combinations are metamorphic rocks created by regional metamorphism and hydrothermal alteration. Rubies and Kyanite are both 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.

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

History of Ruby Kyanite

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).  Like other Ruby combination stones, they are easy to carve into hearts, wands, skulls, pyramids, spheres and every other shape imaginable.  Ruby Zoisite often has large round Rubies which allows skilled artists to make incredible one-of-a-kind sculptures that play on the visual difference between the bright red Rubies and the vivid green Zoisite.   By contrast, this pretty combination tends to be a swirled blend of the two minerals, making it harder to separate the red from the blue.
