RUBY CRYSTALS IN ZOISITE

Mount Kilimanjaro Region, Tanzania

One of the world’s most striking rocks consists of red ruby crystals in green zoisite with varying amounts of the mineral pargasite.  It comes from Longido, near Mount Kilimanjaro and is called ‘anyolite’ after the local Masai word for green.

The rubies are not gem quality but their colour provides a stunning contrast to the zoisite.


This mass of ruby crystals is very large. The back of the specimen is covered with lustrous black hornblende crystals.
