Ruby-Zoisite (or ruby in zoisite), also called Anyolite, is a natural combination of opaque Ruby (a red variety of corundum (aluminum oxide)) and Zoisite (Calcium Aluminum Silicate hydroxide). Ruby-zoisite is usually speckled with black hornblende minerals. This unique, colorful, ornamental stone is found exclusively in Tanzania, Africa.
