Mineralogy of Ruby Kyanite
Color: Green, Blue
Gravity: Varies widely, 3.6-4.01
Hardness: Varies widely, 4.5-9
Luminescence: Red (long and short wave)
Location: Ruby and Kyanite grow independently in numerous locations worldwide. But the only known sources for Ruby Kyanite stones infused together are in India, Greece and Tazmania.
Rock Family: Ruby Kyanite 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 Kyanite, typically just two minerals are present, blue Kyanite and red Corundum (Ruby).
Formation: Ruby Kyanite is a rare type of metamorphic rock created by regional metamorphism and hydrothermal alteration. Both Kyanite 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. 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 into a combination stone over time.
Mining: Mined at its 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.
Enhancements: The Rubies in Ruby Kyanite are rarely gem quality, so typically these strikingly colored stones will remain intact. All Ruby Kyanites on the market are completely natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
Synonyms: Ruby in Kyanite
History of Ruby Kyanite
Ruby Kyanite 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. It has been available on the commercial market since at least the mid-1990s, since it is included in the modern lapidary Love is in the Earth (1995). There is no known unique history for this stone.

It enhances lucid dreaming and dream recall, and also amplifies manifestation. Ruby Kyanite is attuned to ALL the Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Libra, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius. It is connected to the element of Earth and Storm and vibrates to the master number 3 and 4.
Emotional: Ruby Kyanite helps us to understand and communicate our own emotional reactions. It gently reminds us that there are many ways to look at a situation – and some of those perspectives are wildly off base! Ruby Kyanite helps us to determine which is the most correct perspective – which is usually the one that leaves us feeling empowered, calm, compassionate, and ready to do what is necessary. Ruby Kyanite helps us to find our voice, follow our bliss, and be true to ourselves. It is a stone of courage, clarity, and joyful passion.

It helps us to calm our minds and think objectively, without letting our emotions distract us.
Physical: Ruby Kyanite is said to heal throat injuries and diseases, as well as stabilize and strengthen the physical heart. It is used by metaphysical healers to help heal emotional wounds that make it difficult to physically speak. It is also commonly used to remove energy blocks in the spiritual body that manifest as sickness or weakness in the physical body.

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.
