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.

Safe Handling of Ruby Fuchsite


Ruby Fuchsite contains Aluminum and as such should NOT be used to make direct-infusion “Ruby Fuchsite water” for drinking or bathing. Having too much Aluminum in the body is toxic, and drinking direct-infusion elixirs of Aluminum-derived stones is dangerous. You can however, make a safe elixir using an indirect method – simply place the stone near, but not touching, the water.

Good To Know:

Ruby Fuchsite are physically durable stones. As long as they are rounded and without thin edges, they can be carried in a pocket or medicine bag, or worn as jewelry on an everyday basis, without significant danger of the stone chipping or breaking.

Ruby Fuchsite can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.

Ruby Fuchsite can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.

Ruby Fuchsite can be left in sunshine for extended periods of time without losing their color, especially if the stone is opaque, rather than translucent or transparent. However, it is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
