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 Watermelon Ruby, it is primarily red Corundum (Ruby), with thin rims of blue Kyanite and green and/or white Fuchsite.
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 Fuchsite is 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 Watermelon Ruby are not gem quality, but the all aspects of the stone are completely natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
Synonyms: Watermelon Ruby

I first met one of the owners of the lapidary at the Denver Gem Show in 2017. Our first encounter was short since it was my last day of shopping and I had already spent most of my budget. But their tumbled stock was the highest quality I had ever seen. A few months later we met again in Tucson and this time I made sure to see them at the beginning of the show!
In 2019, at the Tucson Gem Show, I was able to sit down with both owners and have a lengthy conversation about sourcing. Unlike most vendors, they were willing to speak with me in-depth about how they make sure their business is ethical. We talked about individual mines they source from both in India as well as how they source from other countries. We also talked about how they treat their own workers and about the links between business, karma and God. Their willingness to talk and their pleasure at the conversation makes me eager to continue to develop and deepen this relationship.
