Mineralogy of Ruby Fuchsite
Color: Green, Red
Gravity: Varies widely, 2.8-4.01
Hardness: Varies widely, 2.5-9
Luminescence: Red and lime green (long wave), Red (short wave)
Location: While Rubies and Fuchsite are found separately in various locations worldwide, they are found in only a few locations together, including; Brazil, Kenya, and Pakistan. The majority of Ruby Fuchsites currently on the market come from mines near Madikeri, India.
Rock Family: Ruby Fuchsite is 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 Fuchsite, it is primarily green and/or white Fuchsite and red Corundum (Ruby). Often there is a very thin rim of blue Kyanite around the Rubies.
Formation: Ruby Fuchsite is a rare type of metamorphic rock created by regional metamorphism and hydrothermal alteration. Both Fuchsite and Rubies are formed during the metamorphic process in various locations around the globe. However, in India these two minerals are occasionally fused together into a single stone.
Mining: Ruby Fuchsites are mined at their primary deposit, the principal purpose being to mine gem-quality Rubies, although any type of Ruby is collected. Most Rubies are mined using alluvial mining techniques – which simply means that an area is flooded to wash the rubies (which are heavy) out from the gravel and mud. Recently, however, a opaque Rubies in a Fuchsite matrix have become collectors items.
Enhancements: The Rubies in Ruby Fuchsite are not gem quality, but the all aspects of the stone are completely natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
History of Ruby Fuchsite
Ruby Fuchsite is a relatively “new” healing stone whose properties have only recently begun to be explored. As a result, it was not included in early lapidaries, texts which describe gemstones and their powers.

I first met the owner of the lapidary in 2014 at the Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. 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 whole-seller 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 worthwhile challenge. He made me feel like I could succeed, both at ethical sourcing and at being a business woman.
I looked forward to a long business relationship with him. He died, unexpectedly, 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. The wife had never worked before, but she has 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.
